Wonderful recipe, thanks for sharing. The first time I made it I simmered the sauce longer and it thickened up some. The second time I didn't have much time so I added a little cornstarch to the sauce and worked well. I love the flavor of this!! Will be making this again!!! Thanks again.

I have another version of this recipe that I normally use, but this looked quicker so I gave it a try. I'm sorry but we weren't impressed. The sauce was much too runny and overall had very little flavor. I wound up adding extra garlic, onion, paprika and parmesan just to give it a little flavor. I wish that I could say we would make this again, but we probably won't. Again, I'm sorry, I really wanted to like it!

This tasted just like a dish they serve at a restraunt called Johnny Carino's! I made more cream sauce then called for, taking the hint from other reviewers. Thank you so much for such a tasty recipe. I will definitely be making this again.
