We loved the creamy sauce this made...the only change I made was to use 1/2 cup heavy cream (that's all I had) and added 1/2 cup of 2% milk...it worked perfectly...this is one tasty dish...it made enough to serve three people...this is going on my best of 2022 list...made for "Billboard" tag game...
