I use this dish often when the schedule gets tight and I need a "hurry up" vegetable to cook. It adds plenty of substance to a simple meal.

"It' just okay not great"

"This is an amazingly simple recipe. Between freezer and pantry all the ingredients were on hand, it went together fast and was delicious. I did add diced red onions and used Neufchatel cream cheese which has 1/3 less fat but think I'll give the fat-free version a try next time just to see if it affects the tastiness of the dish."

"I thought this was nice. At the time I tried it, I had bought shredded cabbage for something else and needed to use it. I had the cream cheese that is mixed with veggies. It was great."

"Fabulously creamy and quick to make! - I used 1/3 of an 8 oz. cream cheese block, and it was perfect!"
