I usually double recipe so that there's enough sauce so that it's not too dry, also can be made with broccoli, or other vegetables. Use you creativity. Gets cold very quickly so serve as soon as it is ready. You can heat the egg and cream mixture if you like, but do not boil, and then pour over pasta. Hope you enjoy!!!!
