    Cream cheese!! Brilliant! In all my years of cooking, it’s never crossed my mind to use it. Thanks. Trying this tonight!

    My husband said this was a keeper! I used diced tomatoes, onions, garlic for the sauce and slice smoked sausage for the meat. I also used vegetable pasta – great way to get vegetables in the kids.

    Wow guys, thanks!

    Carol- I visited and will surely be trying some of your delicious-looking baked goods!

    Janice- nice to know there’s another “white-phobe” out there!

    Anon- Oh, I’ll have to try that- upping the cheese factor!

    Good stuff, we make something similar:

    We toss the cooked spaghetti noodles with cubbed cream cheese, shredded motzerella and parm and garlic and parsly, we layer noodles, red sauce, noodles, red sauce and then cheese on top of course! YUM

    I am so laughing at your comment about white gloppy stuff! I’m okay with cream cheese and butter, but, yeah, I HATE mayo oozing out of sandwiches and the corners of people’s mouths! Not sure where my aversion came from.
