We loved this dish. I, too, couldn't find the garlic and herb spreadable cheese so I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and added 2tsps of minced garlic and 1 tsp onion powder to the tomatoes and cheese in the skillet. This almost tasted like Chicken Parmesan. This will be in our regular rotation.

Delicious! I couldn't find reduced fat garlic and herb spreadable cheese so I used the garden vegetable variety and added garlic powder and Italian seasoning to taste,

We love this one! My family has requested it multiple times. Even my picky 6 year old asks for it.
