This was delicious. I loved the flavor of the cream sauce and the kick the tomatoes gave. Omitted the peas, not a fan. My brother said when it was cooking that the aroma was fantastic. Sprinkled more Parmesan on mt serving, cause that I am a big fan of....YUM!

The best thing this recipe has going for it is the use of a single pan. It is also easy to cut in half for a smaller family. I used half ground beef and half ground sausage and added black olives just before serving. A keeper.

Aside from adding extra garlic, just because we are garlic lovers, and topping with extra cheese and some parsley; I didn’t change a thing! Absolutely delicious!! I love the ease of cooking the pasta right in the same pan, which makes it perfect for a five star weeknight meal, but also great for unexpected company since it comes together so quickly!

Even my picky eater husband enoyed this! Might try crushed tomatoes next time for a creamier sauce.
