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.

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.

My family did not like this it was easy but taste was not that big. Not some thing my family even wanted to eat.

This is good, but I added 1 T. of butter and used half and half, then stirred in one clove of minced garlic and 1 T. of grated parmesan at the end. Delicious!

My family is not a huge fan of peas or carrots but I tried this recipe anyway as part of a Thanksgiving meal. This was delicious. Your children won't even realize they are eating vegetables.
