I made a couple alterations/substitutions: I used a package of fat free cream cheese instead of the chive and onion because even the reduced fat chive/onion was too calorie/fat laden for me. I also used a cup of fat free chicken broth because i wanted more sauce & I had to thicken it w/a little flour. Instead of sherry i used marsala wine (double the amount it called for) and fresh garlic and basil fettucine. I did use a yellow pepper but a white onion was what i had on hand. my husband and i were both impressed with this meal and i let him take the leftovers for lunch! Read More

Sauce was way too runny -- I should have added some cornstarch along with the chicken broth for thickening. Other than the thin sauce this turned out to be a standard stir-fry (although flavors are pretty subtle.) Sorry -- Nothing remarkable to make me want to repeat. Read More

I almost gave this recipe four stars but I just think it doesn't have enough flavor as written. It also isn't the best for leftovers. I followed the recipe exactly and if I were to make it again I would add 1 tbsp. of italian seasoning. Read More

I found this recipe pretty good. I used penne pasta instead of the fettuccini and used the advice of using italian seasoning which added flavour. I used a red bell pepper and just regular cream cheese. I also added some fresh cilantro after the cream cheese and it turned out pretty good...and tasty! To finish it off I sprinkled fresh parmesan cheese over top and served with garlic bread. If I could make a suggestion it would be to let it sit on the stove covered for about 5 minutes before you serve it so the sauce can thicken up a little (as mine was initially a little runny).

The only changes I made were to use yellow onion and red bell pepper instead of red onion and yellow bell pepper. It's what I had. I thought the chive and onion cream cheese would have a stronger taste but it didn't. The sauce is rather light and sparse certainly not as heavy or as much as an Alfredo style sauce. With all that said I liked this dish. Read More
