Very quick and very easy to prepare, but above all this recipe was delicious. I used fat free sour cream and skim milk rather than the heavy cream, and still managed to pull off the magnificant flavor. We will definately make this again!

HOLY SMOKES!!!! I can not even express how delicious this sauce is. My husband and I both loved it. Both of us agree it is our favorite recipe found here yet. I'm thinking the recipe calls for too much pasta so I would recomend making less when you make it. DEFINATELY make it though. It is a must try!!

This recipe was great. I made a few changes along the way. I used more tomato sauce and less cream and also used parmesan cheese because that is what I had. I will make this again.

Our family has a new favorite! This dish is absolutely delicious. Even my two-year-old thinks it's "tasty!." We enjoy it with french bread, and salad.

I made the recipe, event though I had to make changes as I had no farfalle, roqueforte cheese or heavy cream! I simply used what I had on-hand: linguine, some leftover Paul Newman's spagetti sauce, parmasean/romano cheese and non-fat half and half, which I always have for coffee. The result was delicious, and now I know how the restaurant chefs come up with that beautifully hued "pink" pasta sauce. I'm not sure I'd like it with the roquefort cheese - sounds a bit heavy, but it's a great recipe and will be my "this time I'm cooking what I want!" meal.

YUMMY! I too had to make a few changes by using sour cream and milk instead of heavy cream, but it turned out so good! I use allrecipes all the time and like most of the recipes I try, but this is going to the top of my recipe box.

My husband and I tried this recipe. It was wonderful. It reminded me of a dish served at Macaroni Grill. We served this at our daughter's baptism and it was a hit.
