    I had to review this recipe because my husband and I love it so much. I make a few modifications: omit olive oil, use only 1/3 c. butter, and toss everything with a little oil from the sundried tomatoes. The flavor is amazing and it's pretty easy to make. Sometimes I add chicken. I bake covered except for the final 10 mins.  -  24 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great recipe. I cut the amount of butter in half (after tasting it, I can't imagine MORE butter!). I also used 2/3 the amount of olive oil and only 1 c sun dreied tomatoes. I added 1 c chopped fresh tomatoes. I changed these things to cut way back on the calories and fat. The flavor is amazing. I might cover the dish the last 10 pasta got a little crunchy on top - but my husband liked it that way. Will make again for sure!  -  15 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Omitted the prosciutto and added a few more veggies. Also, cut way back on the butter. This is a great, pure and simple meal. Love it!  -  26 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
