It's a very simple and homey recipe. The sauce isn't too flavorful, and when ever I make it I add extra cream and chicken, also I use lemon pepper and hardly any cayenne pepper. I also use extra tomato if I have any extras available. It's nothing amazing , but just tastes so good regardless. I always make it with tricolor penne pasta, and my family devours it each and every time.
Visually it seems gritty, but it came out so creamy if you take extra time to mash it smooth like I did. My vegetable hating family loved it (although, I did add bacon bits at the end to give a hint of smoky flavor to it.)
