Like to make my own sauces - "BUT" had a serious coupon for this cream cheese Italian mixture, so I bought it. It would be fantastic as written, as the Cooking Creme is very tasty, thus the five stars. I am a "tweaker" - so this is what I did - if it inspires you to walk on the wild side and veer off the directions.
I did it as a one pot meal. Little butter and EVOO to saute lots of veggies (Zucchini/Red Onion/Mushrooms/Sun Dried Tomatoes/Yellow Squash/lots of garlic and chopped tomatoes. Saute until lightly browned. Remove from pot and set aside. I didn't wash the pot. Using whatever was still in the pot (not much) I browned a whole box of Orzo in Butter (2 T.) until it browned lightly and then added a full box of chicken broth and cooked it down until it puffed (25 minutes) Added Cream Cheese Italian blend and mixed until Orzo was covered and then tossed back in the Veggie mixture and mixed. Served with a Salad. The whole family loved. Little kids would like this too. I also added red pepper flakes - which you could not do - because I wanted a little zing!
