    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!  -  27 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious! I added a bit too much Gorgonzola on accident, but the flavor was still wonderful. Yes, the sauce is quite thick, so next time I'll thin it out with some milk, but the taste is great. It was even better the next day, after refrigerating.  -  26 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  20 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
