READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

Super fast & easy! Feel free to substitute another ready made sauce or your favorite homemade. This variety just happens to be our current favorite. A great add, of course, is mushrooms!

Amazing! Ended up with 3 adult and 2 toddler serves (as hinted in other comments) but no complaints. Used lite thickened cream, no such thing as half and half, so probably naughtier than original recipe but fussy hubby loved this! I think we've found a new pasta go-to dish!
