I made this last night with baked fish and stewed tomatoes. When my husband first saw this in the pot he said "Oh, gooey peas". After eating 2 helpings he rated it a 5 based on "the texture" and "the fact that it was not plain peas". I thought it had a good flavor and was easy to fix although it did leave a rather messy pot (melted cheese). I only used 2 sliced green onions instead of a cup, about 1/2 a cup of fat free half & half in place of the cream, and Kraft Italian shredded blend instead of the swiss. Thanks, Lorac, I'll be making this again.
