Top Review by Caro NZ

I made a half the recipe because I live by myself. I froze half before I put the cream in. This is so yummy and easy! I did use some of the green tops because I like the flavour so it did turn out greenish. Really delicious before I put the cream in, so I added minmal and low fat. It was great! Thanks alleycatb ;-) I will definitely make again.
