Questions, Comments & Reviews

I made this tonight trying to test if for Christmas next week, it turned out very oily, and not very creamy. The amount of pasta (48 oz.) is too much. I reduced it down to 24. Much better, but once it came out of the oven it was OILY. Does anyone know what I could have done wrong? HELP!!!
