This was a very tasty meal and so quick and easy to prepare. I did add the anchovies as we are most partial to them! We ate this with a tossed salad, and used 16 ounces of fettucine to feed four of us (perhaps we are big eaters!). After combining the sauce with the pasta, I zapped it in the microwave to heat it through nicely. Thanks for posting. I will make this again.

Very tasty. Omitted the anchovys to reduce the salt. Added 1/2 can low-sodium cream of celery soup. Fast to put together.
