Followed exactly and came out great, so much better than just plain old peas,although I used Velveeta as I had no cheddar on hand


I liked these. I had to use mozzarella cheese because at the last minute (I had everything else mixed together already) I realized I had no cheddar. My husband felt there was too much rosemary and thyme, so next time I will probably decrease those spices by about half.


I really liked the flavor; didn't think the herbs were too strong at all. My sauce broke almost instantly, however - I guess that's what you get when you use nonfat milk. I had hoped using full fat cheddar would mitigate that, but no. So I think next time I will just cook some peas, combine the other ingredients in the microwave or something, and then pour over top the peas.
