      What a great meal for a weeknight! Comes together very quickly and tastes great. I used all half and half and used corkscrews instead of penne, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The pistachios added a fun touch. I'll enjoy this recipe again. Made for 123 Tag. Thanks for sharing!

      This recipe comes together very quickly and is very good! I used olive oil instead of butter and all half and half.

      This recipe, which we found in a complimentary edition of Cuisine at Home, has become a household favorite. Instead of a combination of half and half and heavy cream, we use 1 1/4 cups of fat free half and half and use corn starch to thicken the sauce a little. We’ve used broccoli instead of asparagus, but prefer to use asparagus. The pistachios (we toast them) make the dish, though—it’d be bland without them! Edited to add: I made this with just plain half & half the other night, and chicken broth instead of wine--and I think I like it even better with the broth.

      Hi MsPia, have enjoyed this recipe for quite awhile now, it is a lovely tasting dish with wonderful ingredients. Instead of using raw garlic I used roasted garlic, I then used crushed red pepper flakes when I melted the butter, and used all half & half, & used a combination of parmesan cheese and romano. We enjoy it every time it is served. Thanks for sharing, Diane :)
