Thank you to Kraft Foods for offering me the opportunity to recreate a recipe with PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme. Please click here to learn more about all the PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme flavors and recipes.
I was extremely excited when the Savory Garlic Cooking Creme arrived! I have used a few of the Philadelphia Cooking Creme's in the past and really enjoyed them! I have added them to mexican casseroles, pasta dishes, and even beef stroganoff! The Cooking Creme adds an element of creaminess and really helps round out a recipe.
In addition to the Savory Garlic flavor, Philadelphia has also just released a reduced fat Savory Garlic, Reduced Fat Italian Cheese & Herb, Creamy Pesto, and Savory Lemon & Herb. YUM!
My family really enjoyed this recipe. See below.
I consider it a win when my 19 month old kills and entire bowl of dinner.
I used whole grain pasta and substituted slivered almonds for the original pine nuts it called for. My husband noted that the meal tasted very similar to spinach artichoke dip...which is a good thing, since we can eat it by the truck load.
