    Made this tonight--delicious! Used the suggestion below and used RF cream chz and milk instead of cream. Added in a couple of handfuls of fresh baby spinach. It's a keeper!

    Adricha~ try substituting 4oz. reduced fat cream cheese and 1/2 cup 2% milk for the heavy cream. this gives the dish it's creaminess but cuts out a significant amount of fat.

    I'd love to try this recipe, but can I switch the heavy cream for something lighter?
