    I don't typically write reviews on recipes whether I like them or not. This one however, is a masterpiece. My husband and picky children want me to make this every night of the week. I made it exactly as the recipe called with some crusty bread on the side. AMAZING! You won't be disappointed.  -  11 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this and the first thing my husband said was that it rivaled anything he's had at Olive Garden...and he is not one to give compliments unless he really means it. I halved the recipe and it still made enough for 5-people. I added crumbled bacon at the end and it was delicious!! I also added a bit more milke at the end to get it to be a little creamier and not so thick. Anyway, it was heavenly and I will definitely be making this again and again!!  -  11 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this recipe was great, as did my husband! I didn't add as much cheese or 1/2 and 1/2 as is calls for which made it seem a little lighter in texture (which made us feel better about eating it!). I will definately come back to this recipe! It's a winner!!  -  29 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
