I made this as a serving for one for lunch today!! I didn't have cherry tomatoes so used some small Roma tomatoes, otherwise made as written. I loved the color the tomatoes brought to the pasta, but would leave out for taste preference next time. Thanks for sharing Bakinbaby.
This was great! made as posted except cut the recipe in half. I loved the cherry tomatoes in this. The chive and onion cream cheese was nice too. I had a container that I bought but thought it was too strong to just put on bagels, so it was nice to find a way to use it in a recipe. Thanks so much for posting!
Definitely five stars. This is full of flavor and it's very creamy. I believe the cream cheese is the secret! Made for Every Day is a Holiday Tag.
