Creamy Tomato Fettuccine

"I love to serve fresh garlic toast and a tossed salad with this saucy pasta," writes Katie Sloan from Charlotte, North Carolina. "For a heartier dish, just add some chicken," she suggests.

    I found it didn't make enough sauce for the amount of time I stood making this. It has a great flavor but was a bit too thick. Next time I would double or triple the sauce, I would use skinned whole tomatoes from a can with juice and chop the tomatoes from there. I added the water I used to cook the noodles in the sauce to thin it out a little. Other than those changes I really enjoyed this dish.

    It was good. The only change I made was to use reduced fat cream cheese.
