I really wasn't expecting to like this but I thought I would give it a try and it's a good thing because I think this is an awesome dish! So many people said it lacked flavor that I made some small additions. I added 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 tsp of garlic salt and 1 tsp of cajun seasoning. It's fantastic and tastes just like pasta I've had at some restaurants. Try it! The additional salt in the garlic salt and the kick from the cajun seasoning are really good.

After reading the reviews, I did make a few adjustments to the recipe. I used chive and onion cream cheese (I omitted the chives all together because of this), and added some seasoned salt. I am not a fan of peas so I used broccoli and spinach instead. It came out quite nice!

This was a quick, easy and tasty recipe! I used cream of mushroom, and yellow onion, as I did not have any green...Also, I used imitation lobster, chopped and canned peas instead of frozen. It came out great---super fast! I would make this again. Thanks for sharing :)

My family and I werent too fond of this recipe. I thought it was too bland even though I added extra seasonings and used chive and onion cream cheese. I didnt like the celery soup at all. I have a similar recipe that I will be sticking with.

This was so good - it brought to mind a pasta dish I order a lot at a local restaraunt. It was rich and tasty and flavored just right. I will definitely be making it again!

This is a good dish but will try with chicken next time and hardly any onions. The green onions were over powering and I love onions. Also, a dash of season salt and garlic powder made it more flavorful. The homeade alfredo sauce to this receipe would be great on many other kinds of foods as well.

I was really disappointed with this recipe!! In my opinion, it's lacking TONS of flavor! I probably won't ever make this again...but if I do, I may try making it with chive and onion cream cheese instead of plain...cut the amount of peas by half...maybe add some Old Bay, garlic, parmesan,...The recipe definitley has potential -- it just needs MORE!!

Very easy, very quick. I had to make a few changes... I did not use ANY of the milk. I used a can of sliced mushrooms WITH their liquid. I added minced garlic. Ommited onions (picky kids!) using onion powder instead. I replaced the peas with chopped frozen broccoli (defrosed). IT WAS A HIT!!! Missing something...some spice I think, but everyone wolfed it down! Thanks for the recipe! I will be making this again !
