I didn't like it at all. Sauce was very bland.

Thank you, Robin, for sharing your delicious recipe. Instead of parmesan, I used a mixture of grated cheddar, mozzarella, and goat cheese.

One good thing if a recipe is as simple as this, you can jazz it up with whatever you and/or your family likes.Good basic recipe.

SO GOOD. I took a lot of different peoples suggestions and made it my own.. Used almond milk, 2/3 cups of parmesan, added salt and pepper, and a dash of oregano and basil leaves. Also put plainly grilled diced chicken to the mix :O Nom. Nom. Nom!

Simple meal! Very plain though. I added salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese plus extra for more taste instead of 1/4 cup, 1 tbs. of crushed garlic, and a tsp. of ground nutmeg. Next time I'll add chicken to complete the meal.

Made this for lunch today and it was pretty good. I added too much flour because 1 T seemed like too little to me, once it was in the saucepan with the butter. I was wrong!! I will use the correct amount next time! I used fat free half and half instead of milk and will definitely do that again. The sauce was nice and velvety, more so than it would have been with plain milk. I also plan on adding some minced garlic with the butter next time. All in all, it was quick and tasty!

This is just, in a word, fabulous! It's incredibly quick, easy, inexpensive, creamy and wonderfully filling. I made it last week and got a request for it again this week. I doubled the cream sauce because we like things really saucy, but it's great as-is. Thanks for what will be a family favorite from now on!
