    The recipe as is deserves about 3.5 stars, it is a bit bland. However, I made some changes that made it excellent! We like extra sauce, so this is what I did. I doubled the heavy cream but kept the butter amount the same. I then added in a few tablespoons of cream cheese. I used 3/4 cup of grated Romano cheese and a large handful of shredded mozzarella to make it creamier. I also added in 2 teaspoons of garlic powder for some additional flavor. I then let that sit on the warmer on my stove and sauteed some chicken in garlic and butter. I served the sauce over fettucine noodles and put the chicken on top of it. Garlic bread on the side completed a fantastic meal!!  -  15 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great, simple side dish recipe. I have made this several times now, even using regular milk to do so. Although, it is much better with the cream. I don't know that I would change anything else as they are perfect. We have these noodles with chicken at least once a month.  -  09 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Our family loves this dish. I normally double the recipe and substitute 1/4 of the parmesan with shredded mozarella. That seems to make the sauce smoother. I also use half & half instead of heavy cream...haven't noticed a difference. Takes about 15 minutes to throw together, so it's great for busy nights.  -  13 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
