I had cut this recipe out of a Taste of Home Magazine and was going to post it here, but you already had it posted. Sounds so good!!

Quick, easy side dish. I followed your recipe, except that I just measured out the cheeses and added them right to the sauce, and then squeezed in the lemon juice. I also used mostly half-and-half, since I had some left in the fridge. Good stuff.
