    I almost gave this recipe four stars but I just think it doesn't have enough flavor as written. It also isn't the best for leftovers. I followed the recipe exactly and if I were to make it again I would add 1 tbsp. of italian seasoning.  -  11 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made a couple alterations/substitutions: I used a package of fat free cream cheese instead of the chive and onion because even the reduced fat chive/onion was too calorie/fat laden for me. I also used a cup of fat free chicken broth because i wanted more sauce & I had to thicken it w/a little flour. Instead of sherry i used marsala wine (double the amount it called for) and fresh garlic and basil fettucine. I did use a yellow pepper but a white onion was what i had on hand. my husband and i were both impressed with this meal and i let him take the leftovers for lunch!  -  31 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This pasta rocks! Rich and creamy you'll wish you had doubled the recipe. Very very easy and the only thing I changed was that i used linguini. Enjoy!  -  28 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
