This is also a fun recipe because it provides a lovely excuse to buy lots of whipping cream - I have multi-use plans for the cream (if I can find or make ladyfingers) and I'll probably toss some in to a morning smoothie.
Overall, this is the first even-slightly disappointing recipe. Don't get me wrong, this is pretty good stuff, but my expecations were perhaps unrealistically high given the record from this book so far. The picture in the book shows a side-salad that's probably what I'm missing - some bright, crisp vegetables and festive tomatoes would complement this slightly bland cream-sauce pasta very well. But! I only ate half of it tonight, so I can seek out salad components for the leftovers.
