I made this recipe exactly as it was printed (why fiddle with a good thing?). I didn't have to alter the portions either. I do feel a little guily though I took full credit for the recipe when my husband was raving about what a good cook I am! Sorry. It was delicious. Thanks.

The whole family loved this dish. I did not use the red pepper and used water in place of the chicken broth. A great side dish!

I thought this came together quite well! I cut the recipe in half & used whole wheat spaghetti--I did have to add about 1 tbsp more half & half (used fat free) b/c it was too thick. I also omitted the pepper flakes & subbed basil w/ italian seas. Instead of olive oil, I used a little more light butter--and used fat free sour cream. I also omitted the broth & used more water, as suggested. It was pretty tasty! Thank u for sharing.
