Capellini Pomodoro with Sausage

1 lb ground sausage
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (28oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
3/4 cup water
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 oz angel hair pasta
1 container (8oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 cup of one of the following liquids: chicken broth, heavy whipping cream, or half-and-half
2 tsp Italian herb blend
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil

1. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, 5 minutes or until evenly browned, adding garlic for the last minute.

2.Over low heat, put the 1/2 cup of selected liquid and the cream cheese in a small pot. Allow cream cheese to melt into liquid, gently stirring often. Once melted, stir in the 2 teaspoons of Italian herbs. Remove from heat.

2. Add tomatoes, water and pepper to sausage; stir. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat slightly. Simmer for 6 minutes, stirring halfway through.

3. While sausage and tomatoes are simmering, cook pasta according to package directions.

4. Add cream cheese sauce, Parmesan and basil to sausage mixture. Cook and stir 2-3 minutes, until cooking creme is heated through.

5. Drain pasta and return to pot. Add sausage mixture and mix thoroughly so sauce is evenly distributed.

Serves 6.

this sounds really good. just one question... where in the grocery store might i find Philadelphia Italian Herb Cooking Creme? is that near the milk/cream or near the italian cheeses/pastas, or someplace totally different?

At mine, they have it near the cream cheese, sour cream, ricotta, etc.

About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
