In order to make the Spinach Artichoke Pasta less hefty, substitute cream cheese (1/3 less fat).I also eliminated mayonnaise and mozzarella, which are included in the traditional dip for spinach. Instead, I used milk as I wanted it to be a little more creamy than dip-like to cover the pasta.You can also substitute low-fat sour creme for the normal if you wish.I would not recommend using cheeses that aren’t fat-free in this recipe since they aren’t as good when they’re melted or used in sauces.
CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE WINE?
I utilized white wine for my sauce since I’m on a Friday evening, and I’m sure I’ll be able to finish the bottle.Also, it was inexpensive at $7.99 bottle, so a quarter cup wasn’t much of a difference to the overall price.If you don’t wish to make use of wine, try substituting the broth with vegetable or chicken for the broth.However, let me assure you that wine can be an amazing, distinctive flavor to the.
CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE HOT SAUCE?
If you do not want to use spicy hot sauce, I would suggest substituting the lemon juice.You’ll need the acidic tang that comes from either the vinegar that is present in the hot sauce or the lemon juice to lighten the sauce’s creamy flavor.I was able to tell my hot sauce was not sufficient for me, so I decided to add red pepper flakes as well.
WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD?
There’s one more thing.Grilled crab, chicken, or lobster meat could be fantastic mixed in if you are looking for a bit more protein.
