I'm not sure if you've noticed but I've really been on a cream cheese kick lately! I've just been craving it and simply can't get enough.
So I was wandering around the Kraft®/Philadephia Cream Cheese® website and came across these tips. I thought I would share them with you today.
Here are some quick basic PHILLY® Cream Sauce ideas to get you started:
* Philadelphia Cream Cheese® makes a really delicious and simple sauce. When melting it to make a sauce, combine with a little liquid (e.g. milk or stock) in a small pan. Stir regularly over a low heat.
* Philadelphia Cream Cheese® compliments both subtle and strong flavoured ingredients. For a creamier-textured curry, add some Philadelphia Cream Cheese and a bit of milk.
* PHILLY Alfredo®
Heat 1 pkg (250 g) Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread with 1 cup milk and 1 cup Kraft Grated Parmesan in a nonstick pot. Bring to a boil. Season with a dash of ground nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over hot cooked pasta.
* Creamy Pasta Sauce
Heat equal amounts of Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Spread® and milk, stirring until melted and smooth. If desired, add some Kraft Grated Parmesan® and/or dried herbs such as basil or oregano.
* Creamy Pesto Pasta Sauce
Heat 1/4 cup Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread® with 2 Tbsp. prepared pesto, stirring until melted and smooth; add to hot cooked pasta.
* Creamy Cucumber Sauce for Salmon
Heat 3/4 cup skim milk with 1/2 cup Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Spread®, plain or Herb & Garlic, stirring until melted and smooth. Add 1/2 cup diced cucumber and 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill.
