Really enjoyed this recipe! I doubled it, used whole wheat pasta, added asagio and parmesan cheese, added a little milk to thin out the sauce, and baked it. Will make again!

Excellent! Quick & Easy! I used fat free cream cheese & whole wheat pasta. I also used blue cheese & fat free half & half. I omitted the bread crumbs & butter to save on calories and it was still great! Amazing flavor! A keeper! Thanks!
