Thank you 🙂
I want to try this on Monday! But I’m a bit confused about some of the ingredients. The ingredients lists has 1 1/2 cups of stock, but the method reads as if there is 2 cups all together. Could you clarify this please?
Also my experience with cream cheese is that is it creamy, not crumbly, but we are on low amines at the moment, so I don’t want to use grated mozarella, could you please tell me what brand of cream cheese is good for this recipe?
I hope you have time to get back to me. Thanks so much for your web page, I love your recipes! So so handy, and more tasty than what I’ve tried from Friendly Food so far 🙂
Hi Lisa, thanks for your feedback I’m glad you’re finding the site useful. There’s an error in the recipe which I have fixed up – you’re correct it’s 2 cups of stock. I use the Philadelphia block cream cheese, which really doesn’t crumble but I break it up into smallish pieces with my hands, you could also try grating it with a large whole greater of just slicing it into small pieces.
