My family really liked this dish. My son said it tastes like his favorite pasta at his favorite restaurant except that it isn't as creamy. I think next time I will make the sauce with 3 cups of milk to get that luxurious cream. Even though I will make a change I did give 5 stars because it really is good as is. I know this will be served often at our table. Thank you for posting this recipe.
I pretty much following the recipe except for the bell pepper which I subbed a 7 1/2 jar of roasted red pepper, I used some sort of colored pasta that I got as a gift, and I did not use the parmesan cheese as my DH doesn't care for it so I just sprinkled some on mine before serving. The result was delicious. I think that this dish would be very kid friendly.
