Fettuccini also works well for this dish, use only firm Roma plum tomatoes or the creamed sauce will become too watery --- if desired serve with Kittencal's Parmesan Garlic Bread or Garlic Toast :)

I can't believe I'm first to review this. Made this last night with just a few changes: instead of spaghetti, I served over mushroom and ricotta stuffed raviolini. I left out the mushrooms as I'm not a huge fan. I also left out the sour cream but only because I forgot it. Even with the changes/omissions, i give this 4 stars. Thanks!
