MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2012

This was very simple to make. I added some regular onion when I did the green onion and cooked, crumbled bacon when I added the peas. There's a lot of cheese sauce, so adding cooked pasta is another great idea to make this dish go further (or to turn into an entree).
