"This is really good! We ate it as a side dish with grilled pork chops and warm rolls. I skipped the onions, used fresh spinach and made a bit more sauce than recipe! Definitely a keeper for my family!"

"I followed the recipe exactly except I cooked the onions in butter rather than oil and I added two fully cooked and cubed chicken breasts! WONDERFUL!!!"

"Since I didn't have any whipping cream when I decided to make this , I used 1 cup low fat cottage cheese mixed with 1 cup of skim milk . Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Delicious. I'm looking forward to using the sauce with other pasta."
