Very fast, very easy, rich/creamy, yet much lower in calories and fat than the traditional recipes. Make this a one dish meal by adding some sauteed mushrooms, shallots, frozen peas and top it off with a grilled chicken breast. Recipe from

Top Review by NorthwestGal

I thoroughly enjoyed this easy yet tasty dish. I added a little minced garlic, but otherwise stuck with the recipe as written. But that will not be the end of this recipe. I will make this again and experiment with additions like mushroom, cooked chicken and maybe chopped zucchini. It was so yummy and it could easily go a plethora of different ways, depending on my mood. Thanks for your recipe, JanuaryBride. Made for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.
