Great pasta dish! Only changed up a couple of things as other raters suggested: Added sauted mushrooms & onions, Italian Seasoning, about 1/8 cup dried basil and petite diced tomatoes rather than whole peeled tomatoes. I would definately recommend this recipe, but with a side salad and french bread it serves more like 6 plus. I first made this and reviewed it in July above, I've now made this recipe at least 8 more times. I have tried the Half & Half in place of the heavy cream, trying to cut the calories and after having it made with the heavy cream, the Half & Half just doesn't give it the same flavor or body. I recommend sticking to the heavy cream if possible. After making this so many times and trying different alterations, I now have it perfected to family & friends taste and have had to give the receipe to everyone that I've made it for. Other than the above suggestions I have one more recommendation. Either cut back on the amount of pasta or increase the amount of sauce. I haven't been measuring the exact amount of pasta, but I leave about an 1 1/2 to 2" in the box and use the rest. This is still a 5 star recipe and truly the best Italian pasta dish I have ever made - amazing!
