I used fresh ground pepper because I didn't have cracked. It was just a little bland so I went on and added extra parm into the sauce. Great easy meal. I served it to my husband who doesn't like sour cream and he liked it. I served it with broccoli and ended up eating it together. Good meal.

This was a very easy dish to put together and we liked it. I love pepper, but I do think I will reduce the amount of pepper to half next time because it was too peppery even for me. I also did not care much for the flavor of the sour cream so I think next time I might try fat-free half-n-half. I did heat up the dish after mixing it all together so it was a little more creamy and the sour cream was not cold. Thanks for sharing.
