    I absolutely loved this recipe and so did my husband. I used 1/2 cup half and half instead of 1/4 cup heavy cream and it came out great. When I heat it up again for leftovers, I will add a little bit more half and half to make it creamy. - 2/9/08

    Love this but just know I changed it because I didn't have everything on hand. It was delicious with brocoli and carrots. - 2/27/11
