I was not as impressed with it on the meat. I'm going to say pretty much the opposite of this sauce as I did of the Bertolli Four Cheese Rosa: it was great nearly straight out of the carton, but I was less impressed with it after cooking in the oven.

I used the Italian Cheese and Herb variety for some Chicken Penne that I baked in the oven to get that extra sticky and slightly browned result. The Cooking Creme did not brown as well as the Four Cheese Rosa did, and it also didn't coat the chicken as well as I'd hoped. However, I had also tried some of the penne mixed with a portion of the Cooking Creme and a little pasta water and some extra parsley right off the stove. It was wonderful! When mixed with the pasta water, the Cooking Creme coated the pasta perfectly and tasted the way I had hoped the Four Cheese Rosa would taste straight out of the jar.

So, it is with a bit of irony that I can highly recommend using Kraft's Philadelphia Cooking Creme in Italian Cheese and Herb directly on your pasta right off the stove. It's a quick and easy meal that tastes delicious, and at 2.50 a carton it's not too expensive either.

Quick and Easy

Decent product, made a quick and easy supper. however, we weren't really impressed with the taste. And my oldest complained that it wasn't saucy enough. I love products that make it easy...Read complete review

Decent product, made a quick and easy supper. however, we weren't really impressed with the taste. And my oldest complained that it wasn't saucy enough. I love products that make it easy to make a quick supper, we are all so busy and can definitely use a shortcut!! However, the cream cheese flavor really overpowered the italian herb flavor, and I don't think we'll be adding this to our dinner rotation.

Kraft Philadelphia cooking creme's are such a convenient and easy way to make your meals taste delicious. I use this Italian cheese and herb cooking creme to make an awesome Italian style chicken and pasta dish. I simply add, this in with some cooked chicken, noodles, tomatoes, onions and mushrooms, it tastes incredibly yummy.

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian Cheese & Herb:

Kraft Philadelphia cooking creme was suggested by a friend of mine. She thought I would like it because I am a busy mother on the go with my 2 kids activities. I love cream cheese anyways So I picked some up. The Italian cheese and herb was the first one I tried . All I did was cook some chicken quick, add pasta, veggies and this cooking creme and I had a great dinner for my kids instead of grabbing fast food. Since then I have tried more flavors and they are all good. I always try to have one in my fridge just in a case I have to throw something things together for a fast meal. I'm very happy

Quick and easy way to create amazing food

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian Cheese & Herb:

I loved using this cooking cream. The recipes provided did not fit my family's preferences so I got brave and created my own. I grilled some chicken and covered it with warm cooking cream and served over rice. It was a big hit, and very easy to make!

This product makes a quick, easy and yummy meal in 15 minutes

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian Cheese & Herb:

I made this and LOVED it. I made the Pasta Primvera recipe on the back of the container...I used 2 containers, a full bag of stir fry veggies, 1 lb of chicken and almost all the Penne noodles in a normal box size. My family ate this and there were no leftovers and they thought I spent the day cooking it!

Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme is tasty and easy to use!

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian Cheese & Herb:

I am a sucker for trying new food products. I develop recipes in my spare time, and I use Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Neufchatel cheese for both savory and sweet applications. Normally, I like doctoring them up with citrus, herbs, etc. myself, so I was pleasantly surprised to see Kraft come out with the new Cooking Creme line.

When I opened the tub of Italian Cheese and Herb for the first time, I was surprised at how soft and creamy the texture was. I immediately thought of using this as a spread for crostini with some fresh tomatoes or marinated eggplant. Then I tasted the product straight up.

It does not taste like cream cheese at all. The dominant flavor comes from the Romano and Parmesan cheeses that are included in the product, as well as the strong herb notes. It actually reminded me of an aggressively seasoned bechemel sauce - which led me to an Italian-inspired mac and cheese, with some crispy pancetta over the top. I am looking forward to trying the Santa Fe flavor next!

Great Tasting Simple Meals

By

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian Cheese & Herb:

I love Philadelphia Cooking Creme!!!! I purchased the Italian Cheese and Herb variety and made the recipe featured on the back. I found it to be incredibly easy and the final flavor was absolutely yummy! I think this is a great fix for a quick week night meal for a family and is fairly healthy if you incorporate white chicken and whole wheat pasta. I did use a full bag of spinach which was more than the recipe called for but it worked fine.

My only complaint for this product is that it could be a little healthier. I would love to see them come out with a reduced fat variety so that it can fit better in diet programs. That is the only reason I do not plan to buy this product on a regular basis.

Definitively give it a try for a quick fix weeknight meal. You wont be disappointed.

Comments about Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian Cheese & Herb:

I tried the new Kraft Cooking Creme - Italian Herbs and Cheese...it was so flavorful! The other flavors are good, too, but I think this one is my favorite! (I haven't tried the Santa Fe one, but I know it will be delicious.) I just need to find more uses for it.

I just used the Cooking Cream last night in one of Kraft's recipes. It was great. The recipes are quick and easy to make. The whole family enjoyed the meal. I would like to see more cooking cream recipes from Kraft, then the few they have on their site.
