 When I'm in a hurry but want something filling I always make the
 following "recipe". The amounts used depends upon if its my husband
 and I or just myself, on how hungry we are and on what we have in the
 fridge - I know that's not much help but at least you'll see the
 Cream Cheese Pasta Sauce
 1)  Using as little liquid as possible, saute some onions (and garlic if you
 like) along with chopped veg (I like mushrooms, red bell peppers and
 broccoli). Some good saute liquids are veg stock or half soy sauce and half
 2)  Saute until they are as soft as you like (we like them still fairly
 3)  Turn down the heat to very low and add a good sized dollop of fat-free
 cream cheese. Stir briskly and warm through until the cheese melts (this
 doesn't work quite as well as regular cream cheese but hey this one has
 little fat!!). Make sure you don't have more than a couple of tablespoons of
 liquid left when you add the cheese or else the resulting sauce will be too
 runny. You can pour some away if necessary before adding the cheese.
 4)  Add salt, black pepper and herbs as you like.
 5)  Mix with your favourite pasta.
