Country Crock buttery spread has 70% less saturated fat than butter and 30% more fewer calories. The spread contains 30 calories per serving and comes in many different types. This is a guilt free spread that will liven up your foods. You can feel guilt free and enjoy it too, which is the best part. What I love most about Country Crock is that there are so many uses for the spread, why not experiment with a new way today? How about using it in a casserole dish that will become a crowd pleasing meal? Whatever way you use Country Crock, I can guarantee you will enjoy it.
I was recently asked to become a member of the Country Crock Casserole Club. I love all those C's! I of course accepted the buttery honor.
The kit included a box of pasta, bread crumbs, a casserole dish, and a recipe card to help you create your own Country Crock masterpiece. The first thing that I thought of when I saw the pasta and bread crumbs was to add in sausage and broccoli and make it sort of an Italian casserole bake. The great thing about casseroles is that they are perfect for when you're busy, or after a long day of work. Just prep the quick ingredients, bake, and you have a delicious meal in no time.
I cooked my pasta, drained it, and set it aside. Then I mixed 4 table spoons of Country Crock into it. After that, I cooked my sausage and broccoli and set them aside. I combined the broccoli, pasta, and sausage together and poured them into the provided casserole dish. The next step was to sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. I added bread crumbs on top after to give it a nice crunchy topping. I popped the casserole and baked it at 325 for about 27 minutes. It came out looking like something sent by head casserole god. It smelled so amazing! It was bubbly, cheesy, and everything you could ask for in a casserole.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to make my own recipe, rather than just following a recipe card. It was fun to create something new that I've never made before. I advise you to try this recipe too, you'll fall in love with it just like I did.
I'll be debuting more Country Crock posts in the next coming months. Stay tuned!
