    The taste is pretty bland, but I love peas and carrots.

    This was good, but I also had to add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to amp up the flavor a bit.

    I used fresh cream peas and diced ham and it turned out very good.

    This was good. I did add some fresh garlic and a bit of butter the second time I made it. I also used more pepper to suit our tastes. The creamy sauce is good but for my husband and I it was great when amp'd up with the garlic, butter and extra pepper.

    Super easy, especially with little ones running around. And, they ate it too because there wasn't a lot of different tastes to it. Good for left over carrots and peas too.
