    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This is one of my favorite dishes because it is so good and very easy. The flavor of the Tasso makes this dish exceptional. If you have dinner guests they will be very impressed. If I'm making this dish and I know my dinner guests aren't big fans of thyme and basil I'll substitute Emeril's Essence for all of the dry seasonings. I usually will add 2 Tbsp of Emeril's Essence and adjust accordingly.

      You can't really go wrong with cream and cheese. This dish was quite yummy! I didn't follow the measurements exactly because I cook cream sauces a lot, and I know how much I like.

      There aren't too many recipes out there that use tasso with pasta, but I'm really glad I found this one. I did modify it a bit: used a little less butter, thyme & basil, very little flour, and pasta water instead of 1/2C cream to thin it down. I also added a little Essence and fresh asparagus. Making it again tonight!

      I made this for Easter brunch and it was delicious. I don't eat meat so I used veggie smoked sausage but frankly the sauce would be tasty without it because the combination of vegetables and spices is so flavorful. I did reduce the butter to 1/4 cup and the cream to 1 1/2 cups(I omitted the flour because I forgot it and the sauce was fine) I used 1 pound of shrimp and 12 ounces of pasta and it was plenty for 4 adults. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
