Good idea, but made changes, Member Ysabiau

I liked the sound of this recipe, but only had a container of herb & garlic cream cheese in the refrigerator. I thought this would add a better flavour, and considering the other comments, I believe it's wise to use a flavoured cream cheese when making this recipe. I also paid attention to the comments about how dry it was. I added milk after half an hour cook time, and it wound up making a nice, creamy sauce. Stir it on a regular basis to combine the cream cheese and milk...and I'd also recommend cooking this on low 4-6 hours rather than on high. You'll scorch it if you leave it on high for 4 hours.
