This was the perfect cream recipe. I always have an issue with cream sauces for pasta being too runny. This one was perfect and delish! I used heavy cream instead of milk though too.

This passes my fibromyalgia flareup test - it uses ingredients I normally keep in the fridge and pantry, so there's no shopping involved, and I can make it while flared up without being utterly wiped out when it's done. The most tiring part was frying up the turkey bacon I decided to add to the sauce. It's being added to the monthly rotation for sure.

I will add my 5 star to this one. I'm following adkins, so I used cream instead of milk, but otherwise didn't change a thing. I served it over zucchini noodles and broccoli and it was amazing. My kiddos loved it as a vegetable and pasta dipping sauce. It makes quite a bit, so we still have plenty and plan to serve over baked chicken tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
