  • Beat Neufchatel and cheddar in small bowl with mixer until well blended.
  • Add peppers, onions and mustard; mix well. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Shape into ball; roll in parsley. Serve with celery and crackers.

Makeover - How We Did It

Save 40 calories and 9 grams of fat per serving by coating the cheese ball with parsley instead of nuts, reducing the amount of cheese and using Neufchatel cheese and 2% Milk Cheddar instead of full-fat cheeses. Finally, we serve the cheese ball with RITZ Whole Wheat Crackers.

Serving Suggestion

Cut the remaining red pepper into chunks and serve with the cheese ball.

Substitute

Serve with RITZ Reduced Fat Crackers.
