This recipe was so easy. I did add garlic,whole canned tomatoes,onion powder. It was a nice change from regular spaghetti. also my father showed me trick years ago, after cooking the pasta melt a little butter in the pan and just a hint of cinnamon,mix with the pasta then put the sauce on and parmesan. This would be $25.00 plate in a fancy resturant.



First let me start off by saying that I have always loved cream cheese and thought it would be interesting to add it to a family stand-by of spaghetti. No one in my family knew I was making it this way and even my "I eat everything" teenager wouldn't finish his first bite. Thank goodness I had some frozen pizza and could salvage something for dinner. I still love cream cheese but NOT with spaghetti dinner.



We love this! I haven't made it in a few years, I totally forgot about it. Made this out of necessity one time when I ran out of heavy cream and we just loved the tang that cream cheese adds, though it is easy for the tang of the cream cheese + any overly acid sauce to wind up being sour, so you need to taste the sauce before you serve it & adjust with sugar or baking soda :) Thanks for the recipe!
