Delicious!! I used green onions instead of shallots and water instead of wine. I also added 10-20 shrimp (sprinkled with some season salt and sauteed in a little oil). My 8-year-old and 4-year-old helped me make this dish. Very easy and versatile recipe. We also added green peas and broccoli. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!!

Made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game ~ 2013 and the grandkids, DH and I really enjoyed it. I did use some half-n-half along with the cream to cut down on some of the richness. I did add some steamed broccoli at the end to get the kids to eat their vegies. Next time I think I will add some shrimp or chicken for a complete meal. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting.
