      This made for a yummy lunch. I put some stir-fried zucchini on top and otherwise made it exactly according to directions. Very easy and very tasty. Made for PAC 2008 (-: Thanks for a lovely recipe.

      Loved this, so very easy to make, creamy and delicious, total comfort food when combined with a garlic cheese bread! I didn't add the olives, since I'm not fond of them, but I think the dish would be even better with them. I used shell pasta, to catch and cup the sauce. Definitely a make-again! Mmm! Made for PAC fall 2008
