    A creamy, cheesy pasta dish you can eat with a spoon. Serve with green salad and garlic bread. Great comfort food.

      Delicious!! We substituted chicken for ham and corn for the peas, and came out great. This is definitely one we will make again

      LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! We've made it a few times now and really enjoy it. It's mild enough to give to my 9 month old (and easy for him to eat) yet flavorful enough for us all to appreciate it.
