I made this tonight and everyone loved it! It's quite rich but not overly so. Maybe some grated lemon zest and cracked pepper somewhere would be good - either in the cream cheese mixture or the cream sauce. Totally enjoyed by everyone! Thanks Honeypot - you clever gal!

Well I hope it goes OK - give me feedback - I don't usually have a recipe and just make it with a bit of this and a bit of that!
