      This was a very nice meal that we all enjoyed. The sauce needed some jazzing up, so I added some oregano, basil extra garlic, and sugar; and it was terrific after simmering for the hour. I also used mozzarells cheese in addition to the parmesan cheese. Loved the addition of the cream. This will be a regular at my house; thanx for the recipe!

      Excellent! My husband is my toughest critic and he plowed through four plates of it! I had to double up on the garlic and red pepper just because the smell of garlic is wonderful and I like things HOT! But you are right, it is managed a plate and two hours later it's still with me. Definately a keeper!

      Wow, this was good. I made it for a birthday dinner. The cream in the sauce made it really rich and different. I did add a little bit of dried basil and it was perfect. Thank you for a great recipe and dinner. I know what I will make next time I have a special occasion.
