Found this to be a delightful dish. I did substitute spaghetti for the fettuccini because of health issues and this was the only style I had available. My hubby found this recipe just OK, but wouldn't elaborate on why, hence the 4 stars. I will probably cut this recipe in half and make it just for myself when he is away. Thanks for sharing KsuKitty. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
