    Awesome! This turned out to be the best ever pasta dish I've made. It was fantastic. A perfect balance of flavors. I made this for my husband for our anniversary, and it was a hit! I did take the advice from some of the other helpful reviewers (thanks, guys!), and added a few changes of my own. I did add crabmeat (NOT the imitation stuff, but the real lump crabmeat in a can at the refrigerated seafood counter), and I sauteed it in butter and lemon juice. I used Land O'Lakes Fat Free half and half, and instead of 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning, I added a packet of dry Italian dressing mix, and I doubled the amount of sauteed garlic and didn't remove the pieces from the olive oil. Instead of salt and pepper, I used garlic salt and lemon pepper. I served it over warm fettuccini, then added more bleu cheese crumbles and lemon pepper to the top. Outstanding! I served it with a baguette, and it was a very filling and scrumptious meal. Thanks for this recipe! It will definitely be a hit at our family's special events!  -  25 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Very good recipe. Here are the alterations that I've made. I used 1 tbsp butter, 3 cloves garlic that I left in, 1 tbsp fresh parsley instead of Italian seasoning, 1/4 c white wine and while the sauce was simmering, I added 1 tsp of flour to thicken it juast a bit. I served it on top of the pasta with additional parmesan cheese. Next time I will add some fresh mushrooms. Thank you for the recipe.  -  17 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Great recipe - I have made it a couple times and noticed different results in 'zing'; check which blue cheese you use - if you are using a creamy blue the sauce is relatively bland. Also, I found broccoli to be delicious in this sauce (cut into very small trees)  -  03 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
