      I added red wine vinegar and oregano and left out the cream. (I may have also put in more parmesan than called for, I didn't measure). This will be the recipe I use from now on.

      We enjoyed this for dinner tonight. I made as directed and was surpised that you really could not taste the achovies. I did add the cream about 3/4 cup. Next time I would like to make it more spicy by adding some heat to it. Thanks shygirl for posting this recipe. Made for Sprng PAC 2008.
