    Loved this! Creamy enough to deal with my Alfredo craving, but still light enough to still feel good after. I imaginen this would be great with grilled chicken too

    I made a double batch because DD is a pasta-lover. It was delicious, quick, and easy. I followed the recipe exactly. Served with Traeger-grilled chicken breasts and a fruit salad. Will definitely put this on a regular rotation. It would make an excellent side dish to serve guests at a special occasion but is wonderful all on its own.

    Quick and easy! It was enjoyed by my whole family. I can see this becoming part of our usual repertoire of meals.

    Very quick and easy. I substituted some lowfat cream cheese for the marscapone and the recipe turned out fine. I would probably add a bit more basil, but I'm also a basil-lover. A good, fast side-dish, especially if you're looking for a creamy Alfredo-type of dish. Easy enough to make every day, but good enough for a special occasion.

    I love this recipe. I made it for a sick friend, but I made a double recipe so that I would know what I was serving her family. It was easy and DELICIOUS! I made it again and added some crumbled Italian sausage and mushrooms. That was really good as well! I also made the Greek Yogurt with Warm Black and Blueberry Sauce for a dessert. Also very yummy!!! :)

    The flavor was good but sauce was a litte too thin would add more flour next time. Added sauteed shrimp to the recipe and tasted good.

    I am not a big fan of Alfredo sauce, but I really enjoyed this. I did note, as others did, that the sauce seemed thin, so I left it on the stove to simmer for a while, until it thickened to my satisfaction. Next time, I think I will use more flour, per another reviewer. I will make this again.

    Made this last night and followed the receipe exactly - this was just okay. It was quick, but not much flavor and the sauce was a little runny. Will not make again.

    This is a great lighter version of a creamy pasta sauce! We loved the flavor and the simplicity of the recipe. I let mine simmer a few minutes longer to thicken slightly more as other reviewers stated - just don't let it boil!! Served it with a pork chop (small pork loin chop, trimmed of fat, and pounded to 1/4"; dipped in egg, dredged in a mix of panko breadcrumbs and parmesan/asiago cheese; sauteed in a couple teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil 3-4 minutes per side; kept warm in the oven until pasta was ready) and a green salad. Because of what we served it with, we had enough pasta to satisfy us for 6 servings worth. I hope the leftovers taste just as good!

    There really wasn't much flavor in the sauce and my sauce came out very thick. I probably won't make this again because it was boring. We served it with the roasted chile garlic broccoli and some sausage.

    I just made this the other night and really liked it (and so did the husband). I added more EVOO and flour during that portion of the recipe to thicken it up a bit since others commented that the sauce was thin. I also left the milk on the stove for a bit longer. These two things together made the sauce plenty think. We served with spicy italian sausage and green beans. I'd make this again. Now i just have to figure out what to do with the rest of the mascarpone cheese!

    This was okay, easy enough for a weeknight dinner. Made to recipe, but used a bit more basil to personal taste. Sauce did start out a little thin then seemed to be absorbed by the hot linguine, we just let it rest awhile prior to plating. Served with grilled swordfish.

    Very quick and delicious!!! My 4 and 2 year-old devoured!! They couldn't get enough. Works as a great side or a main dish. I did use some leftover Provolone cheese instead of parm. My kids are not a fan of parm. cheese. Will make again and again.

    I'm a huge fan of this recipe. I generally stay away from "light" pasta recipes because I am often disappointed, especially the creamy ones. However, I have to say this is one of my favorites and I make it all the time. I am always surprised how rich and delicious it is. I make it just as and it's wonderful!

    delicious! I like to add shrimp and broccoli!

  • Katy27 Posted: 11/10/11

    This was light and tasty. It was creamy and semi alfredo-ish. We added chicken (which worked out really well!), which we cubed, marinated in olive oil, pepper, and garlic, and sauteed in a pan until brown. The linguine box we had was 13.5 ounces, so I doubled the recipe of the sauce and it worked out perfect. I used skim instead because that's all we have. I added extra basil and cheese. The only thing I would think to add would be some garlic, because I could see it easily balancing out the flavor well, but I also like to add garlic to just about everything. I could easily see this working out well as a main dish or side dish. I would make it again either way!

    A quick weeknight meal that is delicious. I make it a couple times a month! I love it, the husband loves it and so do the kids.

    This recipe turned out great! My husband & I loved it. I doubled the recipe so we could have left overs. I added chicken breast that I baked in the oven, seasoned with salt & pepper. Next time I'm going to add some crushed red pepper for a little bit of a kick. I was pleasantly surprised at how much sauce this recipe made...usually Cooking Light pasta sauce + pasta recipes don't have enough sauce for me but this recipe had plenty of sauce.
