This definitely was easy to make and required very few ingredients. The blue cheese I used was a little strong and overpowered the dish a bit. Next time I would use a milder blue cheese. I used vegetable broth as that was what I had on hand. Enjoyed today for lunch and have lots of leftovers. Thanks.

This was really, really good! The kids ages 2 and 5 devoured it. It reheats well and we will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.

This was really good and very easy to make. I added a little more blue cheese than the recipe called for, and used much less salt (just a sprinkle). Looking forward to the leftovers - I have a feeling they'll be just as good (if not better than) the fresh dish.
