    Tried this last night, and it was great. I probably used too much cheese, but that didn’t hurt the flavor. This will definitely be on rotation from now on because of how simple and tasty it is!

    What are some extra veggies I can add to it to sneak them in? Was thinking carrots and zucchini.

    This might be an ignorant questions, but how do I find 75% reduced fat cheese?? Our grocery stores here only sell 2% (made with 2% milk) and Fat Free.

      Hi there!!! So happy you loved it!!! Carrots and zucchini would be wonderful as an addition shredded! I found that cheese at Shop Rite and or Stop & Shop here in CT.
