Came out lumpy and had to throw it out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it! The first time I made it using packaged shredded cheese and it was lumpy, the cheese never melted smoothly. This time I used freshly grated parmesan just as the recipe calls for and it was perfect and very creamy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm so sorry to give a poor review because I love Ree and love every other recipe I've tried. This one just wasn't good. I followed it exactly and it turned out bland and just awful! Sorry :( item not reviewed by moderator and published

made this tonight. used 1 cup of Pecorino and 1 cup Parmesan. YUM. Did i really just make that? Wow too easy !!! try it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So very simple to make. And it tasted dreamy. I added sausage to the pasta as well and even the picky kids in my family loved it. Their question, "Did you really make this yourself, or are you joking?", as they licked their plates clean! P.S.: I'm a very good cook. Lol. Just try to convince the kids of that... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy!! Fantastic flavor. We added Italian sausage and it was very yummy. So rich we couldn't finish off our bowls, but I will make it often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A basic recipe, yes. But many Americans rely on pre-packaged foods and don't realize how easy it is to make from scratch! I've been making this recipe for years (mom taught me), it's wonderful and we love it. We just don't make it too often because of the fat and calorie content.
