      This is an excellent recipe. All the measurements are just perfect. Instead of chicken stock, I used a French onion broth.

      okay so i was in a rush 2 cook my dad dinner...i had a bag of penne rigate and some mild beef links...i know it sounds crazy but i made this work and it was WOOOOW! i didnt have thyme but substituted with parsley, used canned milk and used only garlic pepper with a tiny pinch of kosher salt...the kicker was slicing the beef links i had into thin slices, seasoning them w/ garlic pepper and putting them in the oven at 300 for about 15 minutes. I added them to the recipe last and WHOA! we literally stuffed ourselves! Thanks for this very simple yet very tasty recipe!!! I will try it the original way next time!
