We liked this; similar to a recipe I have which adds cream cheese instead of half-and-half. I prefer the cream cheese, but this was good too. Probably would add another can of tomatoes to have m...

I thought this recipe was great. I used cream cheese instead of half and half and crushed tomatoes because I didn't have stewed. I will be making this again!

Great, easy recipe! I added a little salt, pepper, and oregano to the sauce near the end to perk up the flavour. Will make again!

I loved this recipe. I used 2 links like earlier reviewers and had to substitute sour cream for the Half and Half. Great flavor and the kids loved it. Will make again.

Wow, the kids keep asking if we can have it again. I used the non- link italian pork and it worked wonderfully. The grown ups enjoyed the meal and lack of complaints from the peanut gallery.

Why do people write reviews when they change the recipe?? I think this recipe was awesome!

Maybe this would be better if I used sour cream or cream cheese along with a little half-n-half. I certainly used much more cheddar cheese. 2 tablespoons, that can't be right!

This recipe should have cut up chicken breast pieces, but after all it was still good.

This was good, but definitely had too much onion in the mixture, next time I make it I'm going to use about half the onions.
