Delish! I made this as written except that I used mostaccioli because I was out of penne. My whole family loved this! I served it as a side dish, but as others have said, it would be great with chicken or shrimp. Thanks Realtor for another great keeper. Made for I Recommend Tag.

This was right on when it comes to taste. I added chicken and used cream. This made a lot so my daughter reheated it for lunch. She said it was still just as good. Thanks for posting a winner.

Very good recipe. I used the recipe as a starting point. I wanted some vegetables and protein so I added some cauliflower and some canned salmon. I used half heavy whipping cream and half 2% milk. Still nice and creamy. I didn't have broth so I used some chicken bouillon and water. Oh and I used 4-5 cloves of garlic. I almost always triple the garlic called for since I'm a garlic lover. Thanks for posting the recipe. Very easy to make.

I didn't have anything other then angel hair, so that's what I used. I substituted vegetable broth, as we are vegetarian, and used half and half. Delicious!! Even my picky husband said he really enjoyed this. Thank you!

I just made this for dinner tonight. I made a few minor changes to substitute for things I didn't have, however. Keep in mind this is a doubled recipe. We freeze leftovers for work lunches in our house!

Instead of chicken broth, I used a packet of chicken flavored ramen noodle seasoning, boiled for 15-20 minutes in about 5 cups of water, and added a teaspoon of sugar to offset the saltiness.

Instead of parsley, I used about 1 1/2 tsp of Oregano, 1/4 tsp Chives, and about 1/4 tsp of ground black pepper, and about 2 tbsp of Garlic Powder.I also increased the cheese to 1 1/3 cups, and boiled and chopped some chicken breast and mixed it with the sauce, for which I used 2% milk, and added Broccoli and Cauliflower to it.

Let's just say that my mother, who eats like a bird, and very sparingly, went back for seconds and had to claim some for just herself so she would have lunch!! I haven't seen her do this in about 2 years, when i made home made ravioli from scratch!!! This was a great find!!

I used 2% fat milk but I think cream would add a little bit more taste. For me and DH it was a bit bland. But for our son, it was perfect. Next time I'll add more parmesan cheese. Thanks Realtor. Made for PRMR tag game.

Delicious, quick and easy. I didn't have fresh garlic so substituted minced from a jar. Not as garlicky as we like but I think fresh would be the difference. Thank you for posting.

Really great and easy to put together! Loved it. I'll reduce the pasta to sauce ratio next time, because I love lots of sauce. Made for Favorites of 2009 Tag game. Thanks to Nif for putting this in your cookbook!
