  1. Great recipe that can be easily adapted to what you have in the house! I used half and half instead of cream and I added fresh basil at the end istead of rosemary (because I don't really like rosemary). I will definately make this again, but it was lacking in flavor so next time I think I will double the onion and sundried tomatoes and add some more spices to the sauce. Thank you for sharing!
  2. Last night i made this for the second time, and though i had to make some changes, it was still wonderful. I only had half a bag of pasta, Parmesean instead of romano, and i used 1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary in place of fresh. It was delicious!
  3. This was incredibly easy and very tasty! I made for a picnic, and there wasn't anything left. I did top with feta crumbles only because I didn't have any pec in the house. Will make again...for MY family this time! Thanks for sharing! LA
  4. Easy and good tasting. I used half and half rather then the heavy cream. I also prefer the mini-penne. Bruce Ormond Beach, Fl
  5. Amazing! I omitted the rosemary only because I do not like that spice, and used half and half instead of heavy cream, and Parmesean instead of the Romano, because that is what I had on hand. I would double the ingredients for the cream sauce mixture, it is soooo good!
