Let's Make It
Cook pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, heat dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add pepperoni, mushrooms and peppers; cook and stir 8 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add sauce; mix well. Cover. Reduce heat to low; simmer 3 min.
Drain pasta; place in large serving bowl. Add sauce mixture and cheese; toss to coat.
Omit pepperoni. Reduce vegetable cooking time to 5 min. Add 2 slices cooked and crumbled OSCAR MAYER Bacon along with the cheese.
To quickly cut the pepperoni, simply stack the slices before cutting into quarters as directed.
If using a very thick pasta sauce, reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water when draining the pasta. Gradually add the reserved cooking water to the finished dish until of desired consistency.
