    Very quick and very easy to prepare, but above all this recipe was delicious. I used fat free sour cream and skim milk rather than the heavy cream, and still managed to pull off the magnificant flavor. We will definately make this again!  -  06 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    HOLY SMOKES!!!! I can not even express how delicious this sauce is. My husband and I both loved it. Both of us agree it is our favorite recipe found here yet. I'm thinking the recipe calls for too much pasta so I would recomend making less when you make it. DEFINATELY make it though. It is a must try!!  -  06 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great. I made a few changes along the way. I used more tomato sauce and less cream and also used parmesan cheese because that is what I had. I will make this again.  -  10 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
