I made this for my husband because he doesn't like spag. sauce. I had to make it with what I had on hand. So I used garlic powder, substituted milk for the wine, I doubled the recipe except used 12 ounces cream cheese. I was out of grated parmesan so used the stuff out of a can and also used some shredded italian cheese. I added some chicken and my whole family loved it. I am sure it would have been excellent also if I would have had the right ingredients on hand. What a great recipe!
