      This is very good change from eating rice or potatoes. I added Hunts fire roasted tomatoes and some parsley and left out the peas not a big fan of peas. This was even better the next day.

      Really good! I loved the creamy texture. I increased the garlic to 1 tablespoon and used 1/2 and 1/2. I will increase the garlic next time(personal choice) and maybe use sun dried tomatoes packed in oil. I can use the oil from the sun dried tomatoes and saute the garlic and shallow. Just an idea!
