This dish is heavenly! What a delight for the taste buds. Very easy to prepare and was enjoyed by all. Hey guys, I have a burning question..why would you make a recipe when you don't have the proper ingredients?? I see this ALL the time and it just blows me away. I would NEVER dream of making something new and not using what it calls for. For some reason it just really "irritates" me. LOL
I made this recipe with what I had on hand - lots of changes.... No whipping cream and no milk substitute, no gorgonzola, and dried basil instead of fresh. We also used wheat pasta, not white... I did add in some goat cheese and parmesean as a sub. My husband liked it a lot - despite all of the changes. We agree it is probably a lot better with the cream and the soft cheeses.... So a definite recommendation. We'll be having it again and hopefully will have more ingredients next time!

My husband and I live in Northeastern Ohio. We have two beautiful children, Natalie who is 2 1/2 and Noah who is just 9 months. I learned how to cook from watching my mother and FoodTV. I used to burn everything, but have since learned to make very tasty dishes. I love to search this website and try new meals all the time.
