    Altered ingredient amounts. I really liked this for somethng different to do with snap peas. I just threw my snap peas in with the pasta for the last minute of cooking and then did the cheese sauce in the pasta pot while the pasta was draining - saved myself some dishes... The sauce was way too thick for me, so I did add quite a bit more cream- then I added a little gorgonzola to the top since it had weakened a bit. Even the kids both liked it. Thanks for the recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Very good! I did add about 4 tbs of water to the sauce though, as it is very thick. Was great the next day for lunch too.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I adore sugar snap peas and pasta and this seemed like a great combination. However the sauce was a bit on the heavy side.It was also extremely thick. On the plus side it did taste great.I think when I try to make it again I will thin the sauce a little. Thanks for the recipe idea.  -  29 Sep 2008
