"Excellent recipe!! Very easy to make and it tastes fabulous! The first thing my husband said when we walked in the door from a long day at work was, "dinner smells great!" as he walked over to where it was cooling on the stove he said, "it looks great too!". I did omit the peas though, my two toddlers aren't a huge fan of them. :) Thanks for sharing this! It's very simple and doesn't hurt your wallet to make it!"

"Very good! Even my little brother who doesn't usually eat vegetables liked it. I used cheddar cheese and cream of chicken soup because that's what we had on hand."

"I added garlic & twice the amount of cheese and actually used a Monterey Jack blend. I also used frozen zucchini, squash, & red peppers in place of the peas."
