"Fast and tasty - Husband really loved this. No need for the whipping cream, I used half and half to lower the saturated fat."

"My family loves this dish and it is so quick and easy. We are not a fan of peas, so I add mixed vegetables (which I quickly cook in the microwave) which makes it look even more colorful. Yummy!"
