Very easy and very good! I substituted fresh garlic and browned it a little before starting step two. I also added shrimp and asparagus! Yummy!

Very quick and easy just not that much flavor nor was it very creamy. Next time, if there is a next time for this one, I'll add heavy whipping cream, more parmesan and some garlic salt.

We loved this!!! I sauted some garlic in the bacon grease before adding everything else and used a little garlic salt after everything was mixed together!
