I am going to have to play around with the recipe a little following the steps it was not as creamy as i would have liked but it was good. I also added some cajun seasoning to this recipe it was a little bland for my taste. but over all a good base to start with. may add a little onion Read More

I agree with the first 2 reviews. I would next time keep the pasta separate and just top it with the sauce; and possibly less cheese. Other than that I used garlic from a jar and canned spinach so this was a quick and super easy meal with great flavor. It also contains some nutritional items which is not always easy to get a 2 year old to eat but everyone loved it. Read More

I liked this especially the angel hair pasta which I rarely serve. The flavours all work and everyone ate it including a three year old. The only thing is I didn't necessarily like is the amount of cheese that turned into clumps of cheese and pasta. Next time I might make a cheese sauce instead. Read More

This recipe is delicious and simple to make. I would suggest keeping the paste separate as it doesn't mix well in the skilled. Just put it on the plate then top with the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise enjoy. So good! One I will make again for sure. Read More

This was so easy to make--great for a busy weeknight meal. Tasty pretty and filling. I made no changes except for adding a bit of the pasta water to the skillet with the shrimp and cheeses. The blend of Italian cheeses was yummy. Read More

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because we loved it. Just a few simple steps gives you a really special dish. I will say that I would have preferred it to be saucier. I don't know if it's because the liquid in the 398ml can of diced tomatoes I used was more pulpy than watery or if I cooked it down longer than I should have after adding the cream. Either way next time I will stop adding pasta when it has the consistency I like. I don't use angel hair pasta often but I don't know why because it's so delicate and I loved the texture. To make a pretty presentation I transferred the mixture to a platter before topping with the cheese and then placed it in the oven to let it melt. Next time I might double the cheese because the bites that were heavy on the cheese were my favourites! Read More

I didn t have cream and didn t use the cup of cheese. Only put parmesan on top. I like mushrooms so I added canned mushrooms to avoid adding too much more liquid. The meal still turned out great. I ll make this again. Read More

I used some colby jack cheese instead of the Italian 4-cheese blend because that's all I had. I also used shredded parmesean. I used whole wheat angel hair pasta for my kids and zoodles for my husband and I (low carb). It turned out fabulously delicious! My kids loved it and so did we. Will definitely make it again - it's so quick and easy too! Read More
