This was a quick and simple dish to prepare. My little kids even liked it. I didn't have any milk so I used sour cream instead and I also added some broccoli. Yummy :)
This was a quick and easy dish to make, and tasted alright, but we did not enjoy it enough to make it again. There was something just a little bit "different" about the flavour - we couldn't quite put our fingers on it to explain it any better.
I thought this was easy to throw together, but nobody was really thrilled about the way it tasted. Mine came out kind of on the dry side and the family just didn't care for it.
