    Hi,

    Is this ok to do? I'm making carbonara later & was going to use the healthy living creme fraice, but do you think it would be better using philly extra light?

    I've not cooked with it before, but I've seen the adverts where they do!

    Thanks for your help & also which one would be less syns.

    I can't help with the sins but I have a fab recip for Ham & Mushroom Tagliatelle which is a WW recipe I got years ago - it is gorgeous and that is made with the garlic & herb philly!

    Go for it it, experiment :)

    [FONT=&quot]Method:[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]2.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]Meanwhile, place the garlic, leek, mushrooms and herbs in a large saucepan with the stock and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat then simmer for 10 minutes, until the leeks are soft.

    Thanks Kat for the recipie.

    I made mine & it was lovely. The light philly is only 5% fat & creme fraice 15% so it's a no brainer really.

    Does anyone have the syn value of the extra light philly?

    And creme fraiche, even the RF one, isn't syn free - lots of people make that mistake. Hope you enjoyed your carbonara. I use philly quite a lot in pasta dishes - try mixing in with red pesto for a really quick meal.

    PS the syn value is posted in the syn values sub-forum.
