I prepared the pasta for lunch. We finished lunch just now. It turned out lovely. The cream cheese and grated cheese came together to make a sauce. It was rich and delicious with loads of flavour. As suggested, we had the pasta with a small serving of spring mix and balsamic. Hubby polished his plate. Thanks for the recipe :)
