    aviva's Note:

    This pasta tastes as good as a restaurant. Easy to make, but very rich to eat. I've made this for just my family and also for a party of about 40 people. It gets rave reviews. I originally got this recipe from a cooking class, but I made a couple of changes.

      My husband loved this! Very easy, it took me only 15 minutes to get this on the table .. I had macaroni on hand and used it, so this looked like mac & cheese, but it still tasted great .. I made the entire sauce recipe and used only about half, so I will reduce it next time, thanks
