Make It

COOK spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt. Combine cream cheese spread, milk and Italian seasoning until blended.

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 1 min. or until fragrant. Add bacon, pepper and cream cheese mixture; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until heated through.

DRAIN spaghetti, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Gradually add reserved water to sauce. Add spaghetti; toss to evenly coat. Add 1/2 cup Parmesan; mix lightly. Transfer to serving bowl; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and parsley.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with smart sides such as steamed vegetables or a crisp mixed green salad.
Note
For best results, use a large pot of water to cook the spaghetti, and stir the spaghetti occasionally as it cooks to help prevent it from clumping together.
