    1. I will try it…
      I have always been a traditional basic cook
      Meat and veg, chilli, bolognese, cheese flan, stew, fish and veg, lasagne etc
      I have never really experimented with pasta dishes…..
      I tried this recipe because it looked tasty and more importantly it looked easy….
      I have got to say I LOVED IT and have done it 3 times now…. LOVE your EASY to follow recipes… I am going to try some more of your recipes….Thankyou

    1. Hi Jayne, I am sorry I had taken it out s lots of people were saying they enjoyed the recipe without the creme fraiche. I love it both ways – I have added it back in the recipe as optional. Sorry for the confusion. 🙂
