    Cream cheese pasta bake

    I was gifted a pack of Spero sunflower cream cheeses and they did not disappoint. They’re the perfect mix-in for pastas. I used the herb cream cheese in my Cream Cheese Pasta Bake, but original will work too. Spero cream cheeses are completely plant-based and made from sunflower seeds.
