  • 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.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with smart sides such as steamed vegetables or a crisp mixed green salad.


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.

    I have added chicken to it and just doubled the sauce and it is great. Easy and good either way :)

    I made this recipe but altered it slightly by using pre-diced prosciutto instead of bacon and used bow-tie pasta instead of spaghetti. I didn't have to get rid of any grease and it was still a hit.

    This is delicious!! I don't even have to add salt - the garlic adds all the flavor. This one is definitely a keeper!
