Photos submitted. I changed the recipe up a bit for use of what I had in my kitchen. Sautéed spinach instead of onions, onion powder, garlic olive oil instead of chopped garlic; no Worcestershire sauce, no wine, no broth, no problem! Tasted great my way. Make it your own!
Very good sauce. I made a few additions. I added cooked chicken and frozen peas to the sauce as well as some half and half to thin it out a bit. Instead of wine or broth I used cream sherry. It's a keeper.
This recipe never says how much pasta to use. Bummer.
