Neufchatel cheese is not the same thing as cream cheese, as a previous reviewer stated. It is similar but is lower in fat so if you are looking to cut calories, use the cheese in the recipe, not cream cheese.

This was great! I wasn't really sure about the instructions, so i put the milk, cream cheese, and butter in a pan, heated it enough to melt the butter, then whisked it all together. Then I added the powders and parmesan and heated it until it was all melted and creamy. I served it over angel hair pasta with peas and bacon pieces. It was great!!!

pretty good. i like the idea of using neufchatel as opposed to heavy cream. by the way, everyone, neufchatel cheese is just another name for cream cheese. like philedelphia cream cheese.
