Sargento Cheese has been nice enough to offer 3 of my readers a coupon to try any Sargento cheese they offer for free (up to a $4.29 value!) If you aren’t aware, Sargento offers new reduced sodium cheeses as well.
One thing I will NOT sacrifice is real cheese. Even if you are trying to lose weight, 1 oz. of real cheese actually goes a long way (for @ 100 calories). Why buy fake cheeses that don’t melt well, or fake cheeses that don’t taste good, when you can have the real thing?
So for 3 people who leave a comment today, you will be in the running to win a coupon!
Also, if you visit their website HERE, they have lots of recipes WITH the nutritional information.
Today I would like to highlight their recipe for spaghetti pie, it couldn’t be easier to put together either!
• 6 oz. spaghetti, cooked
• 2 Tbsp. olive oil
• 2 eggs, well beaten
• 3/4 cup (3 oz.) Sargento® Artisan Blends® Shredded Parmesan Cheese, divided
• 1 cup Sargento® Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
• 1 cup pasta sauce
• 1/2 cup (2 oz.) Sargento® ChefStyle Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1. Toss spaghetti with olive oil in large bowl. Stir in eggs and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Pour spaghetti mixture into greased 10-inch pie plate; form into a crust.
2. Spoon Ricotta cheese over spaghetti crust. Top with pasta sauce. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 25 minutes. Top with Mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cool 10 minutes before cutting.

If you are trying to lose weight, do you still eat cheese, or avoid it altogether??
*I was also given 2 free coupons as well for the give-a-way. My opinion about Sargento is my own.
