Tasty recipe, I liked the combination of cream cheese with spaghetti sauce. Cut back the pasta 2 oz & increased the sausage about 4 oz. Quick & easy meal to put together, thanks for sharing.

This was very good, the cream cheese cut the acid in the spagetti sauce so I didn't have to cook it with a potato the way I normally do so my husband can eat it without getting heartburn. Thanks.

This was great! The basic prep is so much like standard pasta w/ tomato sauce, but the cream cheese miraculously turns it into something exciting and new! I didn't have any sundried tomatoes around, but I'm sure they would have been lovely and zippy.
