    A great recipe from Kraft Food & Family, Winter 2008 edition (I just love that magazine!). I substituted sauteed green pepper and onion instead of the peas, as a personal preference, and it was great.

      Very simple and very good. I used less liquid based on some of the other reviews. Thanks for sharing this nice recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      I also had the problem of too much liquid, it was hard to get it thickened up after everything was all put together, so I added some instant garlic mashed potatoes which seemed to do the job with minimal effort. I felt like the recipe needed some more flavor (onion or garlic) as made. My son is not fond of peas but loves spinach (go figure), so in place of the peas, I added about 2--3 cups of fresh baby spinach leaves to the finished cooking broth and they wilted nicely into the dish.
      Ironically, after adding the instant garlic mashed potatoes, I thought the dish tasted very similar to one of my own recipes Perogie Casserole
      Thanks for sharing!

      Definite five-stars from my six and three-year-old girls! They devoured this. It was crazy easy and fast which is what we are looking for on gymnastics night. I did make a bunch of substitutions with what I had on hand. I used canned peas (and only put them in the girls' bowls as I can't stand peas). Added a touch of garlic salt and some pepper. Didn't have mozzarella so I used "farmers cheese" from Sam's club along with Sam's cheese tortellini. Also, I didn't have bacon so I cut up some turkey sausage (yep, also from Sam's)and threw it in there. Used Neufchatel (low-fat cream cheese). Yum! Thanks so much for a great recipe.
