MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2010

My family loved this recipe. With all the ingredients in it all I did was have salad on the side with garlic bread. Would definitely make again. Great dish for parties too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 18, 2010

This dish was not for us. It was not creamy, and I am sorry that I wasted so many ingredients and lots of time on this casserole. Seriously, we are ordering out. Sorry.
