So quick and yummy! I used whole milk, doubled the butter, and used a four cheese Italian blend to top it off. Really wonderful, and great for my pre-diabetes diet.
Very nice for a lunch. We started on the SBD again and so I used 1% milk and sour cream instead of butter. Good for this rainy cool day. Thanks for posting.
Awesome! I wanted a quick but healthy lunch today because Im going to dinner with my family tonight for my dads birthday. This was just the ticket Kit! I used milk instead of cream and also used the parm cheese. It really added alot to the flavor. Thanks :)
