  7. This definitely looks yummy and I can’t wait to try it. Could you tell me what constitutes a serving? Is it a serving spoon, or a cup?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Rhonda, yes a serving is about 1 cup, maybe a little more πŸ™‚

  8. What kind of cheese do you use for this? Grated parmesan or shredded cheddar? Can’t wait to make this!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Wendi, I use a reduced fat shredded 3 cheese blend.. Hope you enjoy it!

  9. This sounds delicious! I’m making it this weekend.

    Have you, by any chance, figured out the SP for it? I guess since ingredients can vary from what you bought that I should figure it out myself based on what I get. Looking forward to this!

    Oh gosh, I just looked again and saw you have the SP on there. So sorry!
