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.

    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.

    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.
