This was good and I will make it again with only one change. Next time I will add some cream or milk to the recipe to thin out the sauce, it was a little too thick for us!

Delicious with almost any of the Philadelphia Cooking Cremes.

I mixed regular Philly cream cheese and homemade pesto. I also used leftover spaghetti noodles and yellow pepper (omitted peas, not a fan). I added some fresh cold tomatoes at the end...Solid dish.
