Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375°F.
Prepare potatoes as directed on package. Meanwhile, cook the noodles.
Combine potatoes, cream cheese spread, onions, 1/2 cup bacon and 1 cup cheddar.
Drain noodles. Place 3 noodles in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; cover with 1/3 of the potato mixture. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining cheddar and bacon; cover.
Bake 33 to 35 min. or until heated through, uncovering for the last 5 min. Let stand 10 min. before cutting to serve.
For added color and texture, serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
This recipe can also be made using mashed fresh potatoes. You will need to cook about 2 lb. baking potatoes (about 6) to get the measure of mashed potatoes needed to prepare this recipe (about 4 cups). For extra creamy potatoes, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the reserved potato cooking water to potatoes when mashing them.
For a change of pace, substitute BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Cottage Cheese for the mashed potatoes.
Garnish with caramelized onions just before serving.
Prepare using 1 pkg. (2.8 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Real Bacon Recipe Pieces or 1 pkg. (2.1 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Fully Cooked Bacon, chopped.
