Tasty Tuesday: Almost free, super yummy Creamy Bacon + Veggie Fettuccine

DSC_1100I have been promising to share with you some of the yummy recipes I have been making with the new Philadelphia Cooking Creme that I have been raving about on facebook! :)  I stocked up on quite a few of the cooking cremes for $0.50 at Publix and Kroger over the last 2 weeks. 

On top of the Italian Herbs & Cheese Cooking Creme was a a little pamphlet of recipes.  Since I had also gotten a bunch of free pasta at Kroger, the Creamy Bacon Fettucine recipe caught my eye. :)

You can check out Kraft’s version here, but I will share my variations with you.

  • Ronzoni Garden Delight fettucine noodles (my husband and I actually really like these!) - FREE. 
  • 1 cont. Italian Herbs & Cheese cooking creme – $0.50
  • 1 bag of frozen mixed Steamfresh veggies (instead of just peas) – FREE
  • 4 strips of turkey bacon - $0.50?
  • milk, flour, salt, pepper – on hand

I cooked the noodles, while the veggies were steaming in the microwave, and the bacon was cooking.  I warmed the cooking creme and probably added a cup of milk to thin and then a tablespoon of flour to thicken and seasoned with salt/pepper.  When everything was done, I tossed it all together, crumbled the bacon on top, and served it along with some homemade cheesy garlic biscuits!    It was super yummy!! And so easy! 

We got 5+ servings out of this and the whole meal cost under $2.00! 

Have you tried anything with the new Philadelphia Cooking Creme?  I haven’t tried anything that we haven’t loved yet! :)

  1. Just got 12 different cooking cremes for free last night at our grocery store (well, they paid me .01 for each one. Now I have to try some new recipes. I've always loved using regular Philly cream cheese in sauces before though!
