Incredibly rich side....not a recipe for dieters, but it tastes absolutely heavenly! Adding a little cream to the leftovers and stirring will help the leftovers be creamy.

So easy and great flavor! Made with parmesan/reggiano cheese. Seasoned with garlic salt and pepper. Will be making this again; both DS LOVE boxed Pasta Roni, but this is so much better for them since it does not have all the preservatives and powdered sauce. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet.

This is a rich, easy dish! I followed the recipe, as written, except I reduced it for 2. I also added a bit of basil at the end, as I had some fresh on hand, and I thought the flavor was excellent! It would have been great without the basil also! This would be delish as a main course, with some chicken or a couple of meatballs thrown in...Thanks for sharing, The Wallaces!
