Creamy Chicken Florentine

Pasta!

It's like one of the most talked about foods in this household, and honestly, if it were up to my kids we would be eating some sort of pasta dish every single day.

While grocery shopping last week, I came across the Philadelphia Savory Garlic cooking creme. I grabbed one, brought it home and then thought "well what do I do with this?" LOL

After a quick search online, I came across a recipe from Kraft Foods. It was really quick to throw together and I can tell you that there was nothing left of it once dinner was over.

The only thing I omitted were the nuts because we don't like nuts or fruit mixed in with food (we're weird like that) LOL

Anyway, here is the recipe, try it for yourself, whether you choose to add in the pine nuts or leave them out, this is still a delicious pasta dish.

  5. I've never seen this cooking cream before. Will have to check it out. And you're not weird. I don't like fruit or nuts mixed in with my food either.
