We enjoyed this recipe for dinner. I halved the recipe and it was plenty for two of us for dinner as well as some leftover. I think perhaps there is a little too much pasta for the amount of sauce. I did forget the lemon juice accidentally. I will make this again. Thanks!
This was delicious and quick! I didn't add the ham or peas (didn't have any in the fridge at the time) but made it with spinach instead and sharp cheddar cheese. I think it was even better! Really creamy and if you're a spinach lover, it's perfect.
The whole family really enjoyed this (because I left out the parsley for my son.) The smoked cheddar gives good depth to the flavor that regular cheddar would not have. To reduce the amount of fat, replace 1 cup of cream with 1 cup of home-made stock and 4 tsp of flour. This produces a nice creamy finish on the pasta without the heaviness. I also had honey- baked ham too. Wow!
This is another winning recipe that I have found on AllRecipes.com. The only part that I changed was the cheddar cheese. I couldn't fine the smoked cheddar so I used regular sharp cheddar and it came out very good. I'll look harder for the smoked cheddar the next time I plan on making this. I'd like to know if it improves an already great recipe.
This recipe was wonderful. Omitted chili flakes and used regular shredded cheddar. Couldn't stop eating this.
Modified with capers for mushrooms and parmesan/romano cheeses, light cream diluted with milk, frozen peas steamed in the bag. No chili flakes or lemon juice. Loved it.
