Yes it can be substituted. Heavy creams are better avoided even if we need to compromise with the taste, talking from the health point of view.

the amount OS heavy cream is less in sour cream, and the combination of sour cream to the pasta gives it a new unusual tinge which is very appealing.

but u need to plan well ahead as preparation of sour cream takes near abt 24 -25 hours.

enjoy.
