This recipe was so easy. I did add garlic,whole canned tomatoes,onion powder. It was a nice change from regular spaghetti. also my father showed me trick years ago, after cooking the pasta melt a little butter in the pan and just a hint of cinnamon,mix with the pasta then put the sauce on and parmesan. This would be $25.00 plate in a fancy resturant.
First let me start off by saying that I have always loved cream cheese and thought it would be interesting to add it to a family stand-by of spaghetti. No one in my family knew I was making it this way and even my "I eat everything" teenager wouldn't finish his first bite. Thank goodness I had some frozen pizza and could salvage something for dinner. I still love cream cheese but NOT with spaghetti dinner.
We love this! I haven't made it in a few years, I totally forgot about it. Made this out of necessity one time when I ran out of heavy cream and we just loved the tang that cream cheese adds, though it is easy for the tang of the cream cheese + any overly acid sauce to wind up being sour, so you need to taste the sauce before you serve it & adjust with sugar or baking soda :) Thanks for the recipe!
This is surprisingly tasty for just a few ingredients. I did not use ground beef in this, and honestly I don't think we would like this with that addition. Very nice way to doctor up a jar of sauce for sure, but the flavor could be enhanced with the addition of fresh herbs or crushed red pepper. I enjoyed this, my boyfriend not so much but he prefers a garlic & oil pasta anyway. I added some grated parmesan & basil when served also. Not bad considering the simplicity. Very similar to a rose sauce or vodka sauce without the vodka (if that makes sense). This seems to thicken also, so it's not very loose. I would make this again and try adding some herbs. :)
I really liked this recipe. The cream cheese was a nice added touch. I did make some changes though. I used bow tie pasta instead of regular spaghetti noodles and I did not add ground beef. I just combine the prego sauce, cream cheese, added basil, a Tbs of minced garlic, garlic pepper, and salt to taste. I topped it off with some parmesan cheese on top. It was really easy and very tasty. I will be making this again in the future.
Fabulous recipe! I have been looking for a Rose pasta recipe and this exceeds expectations. I did add a few of my own spices (pepper, salt, oregano, basil) and fresh garlic, but it would have been good even without the additions. Loved the recommendation for the cinnamon butter to toss the noodles in. Great meal!
This wasnt as good as I wanted it to be. I added vegitables like peppers, onions and mushrooms.
I thought this was wonderful. I, however, do like cream cheese a lot and I do think this was very cream cheesy. Sauce was perfect amount for 4 servings. We used two servings of sauce now and froze the rest for a second meal. I used a jar of pasta sauce I had on hand. It wasn't Prego Traditional, though. I really did enjoy this! And, my 18 month old ate it all up, as well!
