Comments

Interesting flavor (rosemary).  I'll probably experiement with spices to find which one really works for me.  It is a very creamy dish, and stayed that way (didn't get clumpy, like I expected it would) thoughout the meal.

This is super easy to make, and it is a great side dish for any meal!

This recipe was a nice way to incorporate green veggies into my kids's diet.
