    Lil'LizaJane's Note:

    I found the original recipe in an old (1990's) Southern Living Magazine. I changed a few things and tweeked a few things, and came up with this recipe. Hubby and I love it. I serve it hot, right out of the electric skillet with some crispy garlic bread.

      I love this recipe thanks so much for sharing! It is so much better than the sauces you buy in the jar or the powder stuff. I always thought it would be so hard to make homemade sauce and my first time making it I had no troubles and got dinner done quickly, thanks again. ~Jenn

      I have now made this recipe twice, and tonight, I made a few minor changes. I added a half pound of mushrooms and a small red bell pepper (cut into cubes), and replaced the onion with 2 minced shallots, but otherwise left everything the same. I liked the extra variety of the mushrooms, but there wasn't quite enough sauce to coat the pasta. I will keep trying to perfect this to my liking, but I think all I need is an extra half cup of cream for the sauce. I will review this again when make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.

      We loved this recipe. Very easy to make for a weeknight and really good tasting too. Followed recipe exactly and served only with fresh french bread. Thanks for giving me another great meal for my regular rotation cookbook!
