When our friend served us this entree, I asked her for the recipe right away. It was so good, I thought I would share it with other. I cut the recipe down for a meal or two, but it can easily be doubled or tripled. It's great served as either a side dish or a main course.

The cheese sauce is absolutely delicious. Overall, the recipe is great. I added double the amount of salt (used reduced sodium broth to control salt content) and pepper and add a dash of red pepper.

It was alright but pretty average. I didn't add salt and it was still a little salty.
