Salmon Fettuccine Alfredo with Rosemary and Philly Cream Cheese

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday!

Today's fare is going to be short and sweet because I am right now in Philadelphia Cream Cheese heaven perfecting my first recipe for KRAFT'S The Real Women of Philadelphia contest and I can't wait to share what I've come up with.

In the meantime, I threw together a quick meal last night featuring Herb and Garlic Philly Cream Cheese Light, fresh salmon, and fetucinni that was quick and delicious!

It is the perfect blend of creamy, ooey, gooey, comfort with the health benefits of fresh salmon. Better yet, because it is a recipe using cream cheese light, each serving contains about 4.1 grams of fat.

This was so easy I will surely make it again!

  4. That sounds heavenly and I love salmon! The Copper Rivers will be available in just a few months. I'm bookmarking this recipe for then, when I'll give it a try.

    Good luck on the contest. Sounds like you have a winner!
