This was very good. I cook all Italian food, so I used mascarpone cheese in place of cream cheese and pancetta in place of Bacon. The pancetta adds that nice salty, spicy kick. Also asparagus or green beans switch it up a bit.

I really enjoyed this dish it was quick and easy. I can't understand how it came out sticky unless you forgot to add the milk. I don't normally measure the ingredients so i can't justify it tasting bland. If it is bland add more parmesian or garlic powder. I also didn't add the peas because my husband doesn't care for them. Overall, we enjoyed.

I made the recipe just as described and it was very sticky and bland. It was certainly missing flavor. I am not good with inventing my own recipes so I have to rely on others to tweak this and make it better. As is, I would not make it again.
