I subbed 1 1/2 tbsp grated parm in place of the 2 tbsp shredded. Only 1/4 tsp garlic, no basil, add a dash of onion powder, a dash of fresh grated black pepper, no sour cream, and add 1/2 tbsp goat cheese before removing from heat. I let the noodles sit in the sauce for a couple minutes to help it thicken. So good!

So good. I added chicken and broccoli and made it a main dish. Easy with ingredients I normally have.

it was nice but I don't know if I would have doubled the sauce as suggested...

I've been searching for a good pasta side dish to have in my recipe box. I made this recipe last week and it was surprisingly delicious. As I started getting the ingredients together I realized it wasn't going to make much so I doubled the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. I may have added a little ground pepper which I believe someone mentioned in their review. It was simple to make and when it was done I thought the parmesan cheese was going to be to powerful and make it taste bad. I was surprised to find it actually tasted really great. Sometimes internet recipes are hit or miss but this was a hit. I really liked the kick the red pepper flakes gave. I will definitely make this again and recommend it to others.

I quadrupled the recipe, and added quite a bit more chicken broth then the recipe called for to thin the sauce. I also served the pasta over a bed of wilted arugula. This gave the dish the kick it needed without adding garlic powder or pepper.

Needs a bit more flavor. I will make some additions like garlic powder and maybe some coarse ground pepper. I enjoy the kick the red pepper flakes give it though.
