    This was very good. I combined it with Fresh Pasta with cream sauce.

    I let the cream cheese melt. I also had a side dish of chicken breast that I sliced up and placed over the pasta. Topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Yumm

    I used low fat cream cheese. I also used Italian stewed toms.. It was very good. Good to use some spices to kick it up.
