    In case anyone is looking for an easy yummy sauce to use on pasta or chicken, the Alouette spreadable garlic and herb cheese is really good for that. You could even gild the lily with a bit of reggiano parm since it is also on sale, and the price for the Alouette is really good. Kindly don't clear the shelves before I get to buy some. Thank you. LOL ;)
