This was a refreshing change to the old classic recipe. I halved it, and found that one cup of dried noodles was not enough, so I quickly boiled another half cup. That was perfect. Also, I could not find the plain cooking creme, only the flavored, so I used regular cream cheese and also a splash of milk to approximate the cooking creme. I, too, used peas Thanks for posting! Made for Spring PAC 2013
I wanted to try the cooking cream so selected this recipe. The recipe is an updated spin on a classic dish and I'd make it again. I subbed frozen peas for the green beans and in my quest to more veggies stirred 1/2 cup each of softened red pepper, purple onion, and grated carrot. The result was colorful, tasted great, but a little thicker than probably intended. Next time I'll add a bit of milk to keep the casserole creamier. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
