This is a perfect quick pasta dish that's flavorful and fun!

"I used 12oz pasta, doubled the meat, doubled the veg. I added 1/2 bag frozen peas. I used only 1/4 can heavy cream and increased water to 1/4 cup. The whole family enjoyed this recipe. A very good meal for busy weeknights. We will put this in our dinner rotation. Thank you for sharing the recipe."

When I say use one can of heavy cream it's because I use the cream of mushroom soup can to measure the cream.

I did make some changes to this recipe since I had some extra ingredients on hand. I added bacon instead of sausage, diced green peppers, red onion, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms. I also added some asiago and Romano cheeses since I had them.
