Creamy Vegetable Bake

Ok, so one thing that you should all know about me is that I LOVE Cream Cheese! Like, I REALLY like cream cheese! I love it when it's in desserts like cheesecake, or in a pastry, but I also love when you can incorporate it into a savory dish like these Chicken Rolls, and this Casserole Italiano.

So when I heard that Kraft came out with a new product called Cooking Creme (it's pretty much a cream cheese in a creamier, more liquid-y, form) I knew that I was definitely going to want to give it a try, and that's when this dish was created! 

It's a dish full of delicious veggies, some egg noodles, cooking cream, then topped off with bread crumbs.  Really, it's a perfect side dish to any meal, or for you vegetarians out there, this would make a great entree too!

1 medium zucchinni (sliced)
1 medium yellow squash (sliced)
1 cup of grape tomatoes (cut each tomato in half)
1/2 of a red onion (diced)
1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
1 (10oz) container of Savory Garlic cooking cream
1/2 of a (12oz) package of egg noodles (cooked and drained)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3/4 cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs
3-4 Tbsp. Butter (melted)

Slice and dice all the vegetables then put them in a large saute pan, and saute them in 2 Tbsp. of Olive oil for just a couple of minutes (about 3-4 min)  Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the noodles as directed on package. (it's generally about 6 minutes for al-dente). 

Once the noodles are done cooking, pour them into a strainer, and drain them completely. Now, when the veggies are just about done cooking, stir in the container of cooking cream and noodles till everything is well incorporated.  

Now place your noodle/veggie mixture into a casserole dish or an 8x8 baking dish.  Melt your butter and combine it with the bread crumbs.  Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the top of your noodle mix and place into the oven @*350 and bake for 15 minutes or until the bread crumbs are slightly browned.  Serve hot!

  3. Oh I'm with ya on the love of cream cheese! I've heard about that Philly cooking creme, but havent seen it in stores around here yet. This sounds so delish : )

  4. Looks delish! Where do you find the garlic cooking cream... is it the Philly Cream Cheese product?

  5. @so domesticated-Ya I have just found it right where they sell all the cream cheese. They have a couple different flavors too. Like Santa Fe, Italian herb, savory garlic and then just plain cooking cream that tastes like original cream cheese I think.

  6. Looks comforting and delicious!

  7. Yum! Looks delicious and perfect pairing for the kind of weather we're having rain & cold.
