These were delicious, and I don't even like vegetables. Was out of mushrooms so used zucchini. The spices made a huge difference and as much as i dislike low fat cream cheese "raw" its perfectly fine when heated with spices. Thanks so much for posting this, i needed a low fat quick lunch, was starving.
