A few years ago, a dear friend and great cook, made this dish for me and my husband, and it tasted like food from a fine Italian restaurant. I had never added cream to my sauce before and wasn't quite sure if I'd like it...I had no need to be concerned! It was delicious and quickly became a favorite of the whole family!
