This does not sound like a good sub to me at all, sorry pacanis. This would really change the taste and texture of the dish and not in a good way I do not think.

Yes, I can get whipping cream, sour cream, plain yougurt and the whole milk, but not heavy cream, well unless I take a drive to NY, but that is really not an option.

GB, when Rachael Ray was on Oprah ages ago, she made "You won't be single for long pasta" Vodka Cream Pasta. I have made this recipe many times even for an Italian neighbor and it is very good. See.

You could try cream cheese. Break it in small pieces, add a little at a time to the hot sauce & keep stirring until it melts.

No problem. I got it off the internet, like a lot of my info. I needed a substitute for cream before and that's what I used. I googled "heavy cream substitute" and picked something close to the top of the page
I didn't notice a greasy separation because I was cooking it in.
