I increased this and made about 10 servings for frozen lunches for my husband. I used a combination of mozzerella and parm. cheeses. I didn't have any thyme on hand I just used garlic and basil. I also used basil in the sauce. Great base recipe, if you have an imagination it'll go even further. Thank you for the great recipe.
This dish was a big hit. IT did take a little bit of prep time but it sure tasted yummilicious. Adjust the seasonings to your own preference. I used spaghetti noodles but any will work fine. Definitely try this one.
Good basic recipe. Found it to be a little thick for my family so added another 1/2 cup of milk. Cream cheese flavor really is strong. Added parmesan cream cheese flavor still at the forefront.
