I saw this recipe through an ad or commercial with Ree Drummond, whose recipes I like a lot. We LOVE this recipe as is and my 7 year old asks for it all the time! I recommend having everything cut and ready to go before you start. So easy and yummy! I calculated and when dividing the sauce into 4 portions, in Weight Watchers, with the pasta, it is a 13 point meal. So not too bad for all that butter. THANKS!
