This recipe is wonderfully simple and flavorful, leaving you room to be creative in the way you serve it. In my version I like to add chopped roasted asparagus, craisins, and an extra pear. Cook these separately on a cookie sheet covered in foil. To maximize flavor, drizzle the asparagus, cubed pears, and craisins with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt and pepper when they're on the sheet. Cook at 350 for 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of the oven. (I have a small toaster oven that does the job in 10.) Throw that combo into your pasta and you'll have a more well-rounded dish. I also tend to increase the amount of cheese and cream to make up for the added ingredients. If nothing else, this dish pairs well with asparagus, so try serving the two together. On a side note, I use lite cream instead of heavy to cut calories, and my man doesn't even notice the difference in flavor. It's by far his favorite dish.
