Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • 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.

Variation

Trim 30 calories and 4g of fat, including 1.5g of sat fat, per serving by preparing with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and KRAFT Lite Zesty Italian Dressing.

Keeping it Safe

Carbonara usually has raw eggs added to the hot pasta. We've made this dish safe for the whole family by adding cream cheese to the hot pasta to achieve the same creamy flavor and texture.

Food Facts

Since the pasta needs to be really hot in order to melt the cream cheese, it should be added to the skillet and tossed with the remaining ingredients as directed immediately after draining it.

Special Extra

Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley just before serving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible. Horrible. I wish I could be reimbursed for the money I spent on the ingredients for this, because I just had to throw it away. The dog wouldn't even eat it. The combination of ***** cheese/Italian dressing does not mesh well. It makes me leery of ****** any new Internet recipes, because if they posted this, apparently they will **** anything. Save yourself some *************, and if you're looking for something new to make your family for dinner, keep browsing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is not spaghetti carbonara. This is not spaghetti carbonara. They should call it something else. True spaghetti carbonara is DREAMY. But even if you try this without expecting spaghetti carbonara, this is mediocre at best. None of us cared much for it, and my husband is not particular about what he eats. I think we managed to get through the leftovers - barely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I first made this years ago and love it. I first made this years ago and love it. The most recent time I made it, it turned out a little thick as I tried to make it from memory and used the whole block of cream cheese instead of half.....smh. But when this is made correctly, it is delicious. I have also tried making it with red onion and it turned out great.

The original Italian CARBONARA SAUCE consists of pancette (bacons), 3 whole eggs, 1 egg yolk 2 cloves garlic, olive oil, parmesan cheese and thick *****, garnish with chopped parsley. You can also use other types of pasta too instead of spaghetti. But I rather use mixed vegetables instead of parsley to have the colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was ok. It was ok. I too ended up using the whole 8oz cream cheese because that was a lot of spaghetti, and added extra dressing because it was dry. I think if I make this again, instead of removing the bacon & onion mix, I will add the 8oz cream cheese & a 1/2 to 1 cup of milk to it and heat it up before adding the rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way too much spaghetti! Way too much spaghetti!!! I think 8 oz. of spaghetti and double the other sauce ingredients might do the trick. It is a very easy recipe and I plan to use it again with the avoe changes.
