I scaled this back to serve two and we just loved this dish. Interestingly low-fat milk (or cream) seems not to compromise flavour in any way, whereas low-fat cheese (in my opinion) is tasteless. So I was really glad that this recipe used regular cheese! I added a generous pinch of cumin in step two and some garlic salt. Fabulously flavoursome: thanks for sharing this recipe, ~Jen~.
