Quick and easy to prepare and tastes great (better than you may think from reading the recipe)

"Yeah, it's me again, but I needed to update my review.

This dish is still not only one of my favorites, because of major hurricane damage (Wilma) to my home, the only thing left of my kitchen was the fridge. I was able to make this dish start to finish on a two burner hot plate. Took a little longer (not much, but the pasta took longer), and it came out just as good as on the stove.

And yes, I do now add the Old Bay to the cream mixture.
