Every once in a while, a product comes along that makes life easier. Occasionally easy means sacrificing taste. But not this time.
Thanks to the folks at Kraft for creating the deliciously wonderful Philadelphia Cooking Cream. It comes in lots of varieties, though for this venture, I chose the Italian Cheese & Herb (think a creamy pesto sauce).
This is one of those things where there isn't really recipe. You can use whatever pasta you like and whatever you might have in the fridge.
While my penne pasta was boiling, I sauteed some onion and garlic.
Then I added some spinach and sliced mushrooms.
Once the spinach started to wilt, I added some sliced sweet Italian sausage that was already cooked.
Finally I added my pasta...
Gave that a stir and then added the sauce.
Stir to coat and serve.
This was a two-thumbs-up from me. Even though it does look a bit washed-out here.
Your family will think you spent all day cooking. Yep, I can see that cooking cream becoming a staple in my refrigerator. And with so many choices--Italian Herb, Savory Garlic, Savory Lemon and Herb, Creamy Pesto, Original, and Sante Fe Blend--the creations are limitless.
