    So delicious! I pureed mine in the blender as I prefer smooth creamy sauces, and I added three garlic cloves as I love garlic. I used only half of the onion, and substituted 3/4 cup of skim milk instead of the heavy cream to cut back on calories. The addition of Italian seasoning added an extra zip and zing. Served over fresh cheese ravioli and with a side green salad, it was a fantastic and simple meal. If you double the recipe, you can freeze the remainder of sauce and have on hand for guests or cold nights when you crave comforting pasta dishes. A terrific recipe that I will make again.  -  17 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very good! A winner in my book. I substituted fat-free half and half for the cream,cut the butter a little and doubled the garlic. I also used my hand blender and smoothed it a little, so that it wasn't super chunky but still had texture. Hubby loved it. Served it over organic spinach fetuccini with spicy italian sausage sliced on top. Beautiful meal!  -  16 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
