    Sauce too thick, but would make again with more milk. Also, I think this would be really good with fresh basil

    Very easy and tasty. I made it with lowfat cream cheese and 1% milk.

    I think omitting the cornstarch would make the sauce a little less think and better with the pasta. It was good just a little too thick. Everyone liked it but thought it wasn't saucy enough.

    I thought the sauce was too thick and lacked flavor, even with the ham. Perhaps more spices and a bit more milk would help this recipe, but I will not make it again.

    Recipe was a little bland. I had added a lot more garlic powder, pepper and basil than what recipe called for. I also added salt, onion powder and lemon juice. I used skim milk but sauce still came out to thick. I would suggest using more milk than what the recipe call for. This is a recipe that I will make again but continue to make modifications to suite my taste.
