    Awesome! I used 3/4 of the package of cream cheese, and 2/3 cup milk and found that was more than enough sauce. For veggies I used carrots and green beans. I added some salt and pepper to the sauce. - 10/29/07

    Really good. A little too creamy though, I would only use 3/4 of the recommended amount of the cream cheese next time. Otherwise, awesome! - 10/22/07

    Very Good
    It was very good... I only used 3/4 of the cream cheese and it was great! My Fiance even went back for seconds and I still had enough to take a serving for lunch the next day! Plus it is WW friendly! I loved it. - 1/21/11

    I made this last night and it was a hit with the whole family. I was afraid to try a "light" version of pasta primavera, but it was great! I will be making this again. - 4/16/08
