    It is supposed to be a light recipe but to make it, you can substitute skimmed milk for milk and dispense with cream? If you make a lot of it, can you freeze it? Thanks

      By light, I meant that it is not a very thick cream like a sauce, but a thin and light one (not so thick). The cream gives that touch I hope but not much. If you want to substitute the cream, use a little cornmeal dissolved in cold water to give it that thickness and, of course, you can replace the normal milk with skimmed milk.
      Freeze it, I have never frozen it, but I think not, because by bringing cream and milk ... it can be cut ... I can't help you with that.
