Another recipe update

Once again my friend Amy has improved one of my recipes!! The Baked Four Cheese Pasta is super yummy but really not good for you. Turns out that the cup of cream in that recipe has 80 grams of fat and 800 calories. And that doesn't include the cheese or bacon. Yikes! So, she learned on the food network that you could replace the cream with evaporated milk. She said it turned out great and reduced the calories of the milk to 200 and no grams of fat. Gotta love it. I think I will give that a try this week.

Yummy Annie, but it isnt like you or Amy need to worry about the calories:)

Hey - when we are talking 80 grams of fat/800 calories - we all need to worry.

Thanks for the recipe. I needed something yummy to fix for a neighbor tonight. It turned out really well. I substituted fresh spinach for the peas. And, I love that you can use evap. milk -that is a great trick!
