READY IN: 25mins
Top Review by ChefDLH

Excellent. I always liked the idea of a pink sauce (or vodka or light red) and the creaminess but didn't like the recipes using Alfredo sauce. This Philadelphia cream cheese mix in was terrific. I used the varation of cooking onions with the beef. This is a keeper. Everyone loved it. Thanks for posting Philadelphia. Made for PAC April 2012. Enjoy! ChefDLH
