The whole family loved this! Very easy and very good. The only things I did differently were to throw in a bit of fresh parmesan cheese and I used rotini for the pasta. Will definitely make this again.

This was so yummy! My DH kept saying mmm its so creamy and good! Thank you for posting this.

I doubled the garlic and i added a can of mushrooms and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and about 1/2 cup of milk to thin it out a little. I can't wait to have the left overs tomorrow!
