Excellent and easy! Creamed vegetables are so very satisfying. I like to use fresh herbs as much as possible, so I used fresh thyme (1 tablespoon) and parsley. Also I substituted heavy cream for the half & half - I like it rich! I have served this for Thanksgiving dinner for the 35 relatives I have every year, and everyone gives it thumbs up!

I had forgotten about this wonderful recipe! What is so great is that you can alter the herbs to suit your own tastes. I have used ginger, tarragon and/or dill weed depending upon what I was serving it with.
