Tuesday Treats: Spaghetti Carbonara

I like pasta and in the summer, a lighter cream sauce tastes better to me than a thick red sauce. This recipe is quick, tasty, and if you want to make it a little healthier, stir in some fresh spinach leaves right before you serve it. Oh! And I also use angel hair pasta.

Prep Time: 20min.
Total Time: 20min.
Servings: 8 servings, 1 cup each
Take just 20 minutes for simply delicious Spaghetti Carbonara. Cream cheese, bacon, onion, Parmesan and zesty dressing add Italian restaurant-worthy flavor.

What You Need
1 pkg. (1 lb.) spaghetti, uncooked
8 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed, softened
1/2 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
3 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese

Make It
Cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt.

Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon and onions in large skillet on medium-high heat 8 min. or until bacon is crisp and onions are tender. Remove from skillet; drain. Wipe skillet with paper towel.

Drain spaghetti. Immediately add to skillet with bacon mixture and all remaining ingredients; toss until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended.

Pippa Duncan, the heroine in my just-released Harlequin Desire CLAIMING THE COWGIRL’S BABY, has this recipe in her recipe box. She tweaked it so that she made only one serving but now that Kade is in her life, she’s back to fixing the full recipe. Click HERE to watch Kraft’s video of making this yummy dish.
