      Wonderful dish. I didn't think there were enough nuts, so I doubles them. Love pine nuts. Other than that, no changes made. :)

      This was really good. I used whole wheat penne and fat free half-and-half. I doubled the pine nuts, and used asiago cheese because that's what I had. My kids even liked it which kind of surprised me because they love the blue box macaroni and cheese. I'm looking forward to making this again. Thanks.
