I came up with this the other day, when I had to slap something on the table fast. Next time I would include some peas and mushrooms.

This was the firsart disaster I've had from recipeza. I made it for my family and we ended up tossing it out. The onions were so overpowering that we couldn't eat it and by the time I got far along enough on the sauce to realize it, I had wasted almost fourty dollars on ingredients that couldn't be saved from the onions. I suggest cutting it down to one green onion and one clove of garlic or even a half. That might be a little easier to eat. Also, i'm not crazy about the swiss. I prefer a lighter cheese, especially if using a cheese filled pasta in the first place. My family and I agreed this isn't something we'll try again.

I made this for dinner the other night. We liked it, but it seemed to be lacking something. And the green onions were a little overpowering. It was enjoyed, so thanks for posting!!
