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.
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.
delicious! I like to add shrimp and broccoli!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
so good and decadent - absolutely delicious! so easy to make, and tastes very rich. perfect with the basil
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!
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.
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!
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!!! :)
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.
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.
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 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.
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
