This is a good recipe that could be better and still healthy. I used Monterey Jack in place of the Co-Jack and fat free evaporated milk. I also had plum tomatoes from our garden to use. I think next time I may use Greek Yogurt in place of the sour cream and a better quality Parmesan or Asiago in place of the cheap stuff I used this time.
Very good!! My picky boys even liked it!! Served with rolls and a salad, made a great meal :)
Delicious! Even my 2 year old devoured it.
My family loved this! (I did thicken the sauce a bit more with some cornstarch.) They said it's called makeover because you should make it over and over!
We really liked this lighter recipe. I used fat free evaporated milk instead of light half and half. sjc
