Loved it! It tastes creamy without having to add loads of cream or anything too fattening. This will be made again :)

I normally make a meat sauce but when I saw this quick and easy recipe I figured I would give it a shot and I'm so glad I did. I was surprised at the amount of flavor the sauce had and how nice...

This recipe is really yummy and all of the ingredients are things I regularly have on hand. I served it over spinach linguine and it was divine. I did use red pepper flakes instead of hot sauc...

Great easy recipe
