I started by following the recipe, tasted the dish, and found it completely blah (even after quadrupling the garlic). Not wanting to waste the ingredients, I kissed "light" goodbye and added cream and extra cheese along with some red pepper flakes and extra ground pepper as suggested by others. That definitely improved things. My husband liked it a lot, but I thought it tasted oddly like white clam sauce (my husband thought that's what it was). Maybe it was the prosciutto? Personally, I wasn't a fan.
