    MommyMakes's Note:

    This dish can be made two ways: 1. The easy weeknight throw together way, 2. The good for company restaurant style way. I thought this way extremely spicy, my husband thought it was perfect so, spice to taste. Serve with salad and bread! I made the cream cheese a range, I prefer it with less but have added more to cut the spiciness when making it for both of us, so taste and add as desired.

      This is a truly yummy recipe. The only things I did differently was to deglaze with white wine before adding the cream, and then I added about 1/2 cup chopped scallions. WONDERFUL!

      Sooooooo very, very GOOD! We had this over cheese ravioli, only used 4 oz of cream cheese. We thought the spice was wonderful, as we love spicy food. I actually forgot the parmesan, and honestly we didn't miss it. I added mushrooms, red onion, and omitted the onion powder (personal preference). Thanks for posting. :)

      my brother-in-law first made this for me, and i loved it. now i make this often for my family, and we all love it, even my 4yo. i make as directed and it's always great. note of advice: stir the sauce a lot, don't leave it alone for too long or it's not as smooth. overall GREAT!
