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 heat 8 min. or until bacon is crisp and onions are tender. Remove bacon mixture from skillet; drain. Wipe skillet with paper towel.
  • Drain spaghetti. Immediately add to skillet along with the bacon mixture and all remaining ingredients; toss until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended.

Special Equipment Needed

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 before serving.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing.

Cooking Know-How

Use a large pot of water to cook the pasta so it has room to move and won't stick together while cooking.

Ratings & Reviews

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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great. Great. Used some pasta water to thin the sauce out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I found this to be dry. I found this to be dry. Not enough sauce at all in comparison with the amount of pasta. I also would recommend making the sauce seperately and then adding it to the pasta. I found it difficult to blend them all together with spaghetti-perhaps a rotini or a farfalle pasta would have been better.

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 3 out of 5 by from This isn't like any carbonara dish I've had before. This isn't like any carbonara dish I've had before. It could use more cream cheese. Next time I will cook the bacon and then crush or cut it up into small pieces. Splitting the recipe in half is a good idea if feeding 2 or 3 since it doesn't keep well for leftover meals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made this last night and it was horrible. This is NOT Spaghetti Carbonara. Don't waste your time making it.
