Philadelphia Cooking Creme Review

I have to admit that cooking is not that much fun for me. My favorite recipes are the ones that get me in and out of the kitchen the fastest, and they have to be easy!

So if anyone offers me a shortcut…I’m gonna take it.

Thank you, Philadelphia Cooking Creme.

Philadelphia cooking creme

Philadelphia Cooking Creme is a reduced fat, creamy, and spoonable sauce in four delicious flavors: Italian Cheese & Herb, Savory Garlic, Santa Fe Blend, and Original.

When I first heard about it, I really wasn’t sure that I’d like it. Honestly, it sounded kinda gross. But remember how I said I liked easy? Easy trumps everything, so I had to give it a go.

When the cooking creme flavors arrived, I took the Italian Cheese & Herb flavor and made a vegetarian version of a recipe printed right on the package.

Veggie Primavera Pasta

2 cups frozen or fresh stir-fry vegetables (I used fresh carrots, celery, snow peas, and broccoli for mine)
1 tub (10 oz) PHILADELPHIA Italian Cheese & Herb Cooking Creme
2 cups hot cooked fettuccine noodles

Stir fry veggies until cooked and heated through. Add cooking creme; cook and stir 3 minutes. Stir in hot pasta.

Serve and enjoy!

The Results: Go figure. My super picky self liked it, really liked it! It gave the pasta a wonderful creaminess and added just the right amount of herb and spice flavor to the recipe. It was an absolute breeze to use because it blended so smoothly and easily.

I think the cooking creme is extremely versatile, and it’s such a quick and easy way to add new flavor to old recipes. I can think of at least five of my signature casseroles which would be delicious if I added cooking creme. Next up – homemade macaroni and cheese with the Santa Fe Blend. YUM!
