  1. My family loves this! I double the recipe because we have 6 in our family. I've made this many times, and I usually just use regular cream cheese because that's what I have at home, but I have made it with the herb and it tastes wonderful too.
  2. This was really yummy! We like to have pasta, but are tired of the same ol' same ol'. I did switch the whipping cream for evap. milk (what I had on hand), but it still turned out delicious! Everyone in the family ate it up.
