Gave this recipe to several friends. It is now a regular. PS: Add 1/4 vodka to the onions and flour for pasta a la vodka twist. very good adult fare

This recipe was good...a nice alternative to ravioli with plain sauce.

This was amazing - great flavor!! I used my own homegrown tomatoes and made an italian sauce with them, other than that left the recipe as is. Will definitely make again. My husband couldn't stop raving about the taste. Oh and since I am on low carb diet I served it over fresh spinach and diced yellow peppers that I had steamed (rather than the pasta).

Excellent! My family love it, even my 7 yr old who is picky about everything. She asked for extra sauce on the side to dip her bread.

Just reviewed this dish and forgot to mention that it is a 5 star dish. I can't get the stars to move forward. Sorry!

Fast and good. I served over plain pasta and substituted half & half for heavy cream, and fresh shrimp for cooked. My husband suggested I add more shrimp next time.
