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.

Ratings & Reviews

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 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 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 I made this last night and it was horrible. This is NOT Spaghetti Carbonara. Don't waste your time making it.

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 1 out of 5 by from THIS IS NOT CARBONATE This is a gross misrepresentation of spaghetti carbonara. If you like a trier version here it is. Slice your bacon into 1" pieces (at least 2 syrups of bacon per person) and cook while you are waiting for your water to boil for spaghetti. Grate your parmesan at 1/4 cup of FRESH parmesan, get 1 egg per person serving, beat eggs in a bowl, add pepper to taste. Add your grated parmesan and some heavy whipping cream, about 1/4 cup for 4 servings mix well to combine eggs, parmesan and cream set aside. Once Bacon is crisp turn off heat and let set. Once spaghetti is done cooking drain well and return to pan, turn on heat to medium. Pour your egg mixture and cooked bacon (grease and all, you can drain if you'd like) to pan. Using a wooden spoon stir spaghetti to coat. Continue stirring mixture do that the eggs cook. You will see a scrambled egg consistency start to stick to the spaghetti noodles. When the egg is done to your liking turn off heat and serve. SPAGHETTI CARBONARA DOES NOT CONTAIN RAW EGG if you cook it properly. Serve topped with more grated parmesan and pepper to taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this quite a few times and my extremely picky eater friend loves it. I've made this quite a few times and my extremely picky eater friend loves it. I marinate and cook some cubed chicken breasts in Italian Dressing to add to the Carbona-really adds a lot of flavor. We also used that very thick spaghetti with a hole in the center-it absorbed the sauce throughout the pasta and was delicious!
