Very fast and easy. Next time I will add some salt and pepper and a bit less milk. I used part milk and part half-n-half, and had to cook it for about 7 minutes for some of the liquid to boil off so it wasn't soupy. Served this as a side dish w/pork chops and a salad.

This was delicious and so quick to prepare. I used a bit more garlic and fat free half-and-half in place of the milk. I omitted the peas because I didn't have any on hand. I used pecorino romano in place of the parmesan. Thanks, Petunia!
