Let's Make It
Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, adding peas to the boiling water for the last 3 min.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, dressing and flour in medium saucepan with whisk until well blended. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly until mixture is well blended. Add ham; cook on medium-low heat 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta mixture; return to pan. Add sauce; mix lightly. Cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Top with parsley and Parmesan.
Save 80 calories and 16 grams of fat per serving by using smoked ham instead of bacon and replacing the egg yolks and whipping cream with PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese, KRAFT Lite Creamy Caesar Dressing, flour and fat-free milk.
Use a large pot of water to cook pasta so it has room to move and won't stick together while cooking.
Serve this entree with a crisp mixed green salad topped with your favorite KRAFT Light Dressing.
