    Very good and very easy.

    Good recipe. Try adding some shrimp during the simmering time. I also tried it with Rotini pasta. Holds on to the sauce better, I think...

    I've always liked tomato cream sauces. This was a decent base recipe, but like others said, I had to add quite a bit of extra cayenne and spices to overcome the blandness. The Parmesan cheese helped give it a bit more flavor too. Next time, I'd probably add in some fresh tomatoes or tomato sauce and throw in some additional Italian seasonings.

    My family loved this. Taking the advice of others I added cayenne, oregano, grilled chicken (cut into bite sized pieces) and Pomi strained tomatoes. I also used spiral pasta. It was SO GOOD!

    This is a pretty good pasta sauce for those who like it a bit mild. I prefer a heartier pasta sauce and expected the sun dried tomatoes and red pepper flakes to take over in this recipe, but the cream dulled the flavor too much for my tastes. I am going to try again with this recipe and add more/different spices to see if that gives me the taste I was looking for. Thanks!

    Yummy. This was good. Made it today for lunch. I didn't have any crushed red pepper flakes so I deseeded and chopped up a Thai chili pepper instead. I had fresh green beans, zucchini and carrots leftover from the Copycat Olive Garden Minestrone Soup recipe by Todd Wilbur. I julienned the zucchini and carrots and sauteed the vegetables together in butter and sprinkled in some garlic powder, salt and pepper for a quick side dish. And I threw one of those packaged loaves of Ciabatta bread in the oven too to serve with the pasta. Easy, quick and the kids loved it too!
