Just a tip -- Philly® Cooking Basics

Sunday, April 11, 2010

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.

Quick PHILLY® Sauces

Do you know that PHILLY® makes for a truly delicious sauce that you can enjoy over your pasta, chicken, fish or whatever your heart desires (well.. not quite but you get the drift)?

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.
