Top Review by AmandaInOz

This turned out very well in the end. As the recipe is written, the sauce is very thick, and there's no way I could have cooked it for 1-2 hours without adding a good bit of liquid. It's also very sweet, and the sun-dried tomato does not come through in the flavour. To remedy this, I tossed the pasta in a bit of the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes before adding the sauce, to which I had added 2T of light thickened cream to cut the sweetness, so the 4 star review is based on the end product which was very nice. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2008.
