  • Mix cream cheese product, milk and seasonings until blended. Cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.
  • Add garlic to drippings; cook and stir 1 min. Add bacon and cream cheese mixture; cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently.
  • Drain spaghetti, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Add enough of the reserved water to skillet to reach desired sauce consistency. Add spaghetti and half the Romano; toss to evenly coat. Transfer to serving bowl; sprinkle with remaining Romano and parsley.

Food Facts

For best results, use a large pot of water to cook the spaghetti, and stir occasionally as it cooks to help prevent it from clumping together.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favourite Kraft Dressing.

Variation

Substitute Kraft 100% Parmesan Shredded Cheese for the Romano, and/or fresh basil for the parsley.

    Quick and easy! Used pancetta instead of bacon, but either way it has to be good.

    Loved the recipe. It was easy to prepare. I questioned the "no salt" when cooking the pasta. I also questioned the 1/2 of water added to the cooking cream mixture. However, I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out beautifully. This will definitely be added to my list of Kraft "go-to" recipes.
