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!
