This recipe is so quick and easy. Love the addition of the cream cheese. I did add some sliced onion to the mix. I used olive oil instead of the butter. And I re seasoned several times. Serve over buttered noodles or mashed potatoes. Can’t beat that easy meal.

Definitely add onion and bacon. I would also season very well. I haven't tried cream cheese, but I might try it.

This is an amazingly simple recipe. Between freezer and pantry all the ingredients were on hand, it went together fast and was delicious. I did add diced red onions and used Neufchatel cream cheese which has 1/3 less fat but think I'll give the fat-free version a try next time just to see if it affects the tastiness of the dish.

I thought this was nice. At the time I tried it, I had bought shredded cabbage for something else and needed to use it. I had the cream cheese that is mixed with veggies. It was great.

Fabulously creamy and quick to make! - I used 1/3 of an 8 oz. cream cheese block, and it was perfect!

At first I was a little hesitant to add the cream cheese, but am glad I did (I only used half of the package of cream cheese and used 4 tbsp of water vs. 2 so the cheese wasn't too thick). I will definitely make this again the way I did and maybe add a little onion and celery. Yummy!
