    This is a great, delicate recipe. Add the cheese upon serving and add salt and pepper if it is too bland for you. Personally, I love just tasting the cheese without a lot of garlic or other seasoning. If you have good cheese, you will have flavorful pasta.

    This is too bland, like so many of these Everyday Food recipes that seem to eliminate cooking time by eliminating all seasoning. I added some nutmeg and salt, but we still wound up also adding jarred tomato sauce to rescue it. Also, it didn't come out "creamy," but instead more like gloopy melted cheese with a lot of liquid at the bottom of the pot. Admittedly I used fat free milk instead of half

      Also, add the cheese when serving and there will be not problem. Just add it and toss.

      Fat free milk separates if the food comes to a boil. Cream and half and half don't. Read about how to keep you cheese from becoming a "gloopy mess".

    Worth noting that this recipe is listed as being vegetarian, or is at least lumped in with other vegetarian recipes, which it is most certainly not. Pecorino Romano contains natural renet, rather than the microbial (manmade) alternative which IS.

    Garlic and fresh parsley would really make this tastier.

    This is so good, elegant is the first word comes to mind. I like to make this as a side dish for grilled fish or shrimp.

    It does show the number of servings...says it serves 4. As for the nutritional information, each of the products you use has a label on it. You can calculate the number of calories, carbs, fat content etc. by adding everything up as you add it. People constantly change recipes to suit their own tastes so it is much easier to calculate what YOU put in it compared to what someone else has done. My son has had Type 1 diabetes for 14 years now and it becomes second nature to add the stuff up.

    For sure salt the water you cook the pasta in and use real cheese, maybe even buy the wedge and grate it yourself, makes for a very flavorful dish. Love it.

    This dish is supposed to be delicate. Adding a pinch of fresh nutmeg to this really enhances the butter and cream flavors of this dish. Also, if you feel this is bland, adding some salt!

    I have found that Martha's entree recipes tend to be on the bland side, maybe to appeal to a broader range of palates. I agree about garlic and also would add some fresh ground pepper.
