    BIG_CHIEF's Note:

    I don't remember where I got this one, but it is so yummy! It's easy but elegant, perfect for company. I always substitute half and half for the heavy cream and it tastes very rich but with less calories. This is a great dish for a beginner cook to impress the in-laws with! Goes great with buttered egg noodles with some parsley sprinkled in and a nice green veggie. Enjoy!
