I love quick and easy recipes and this pasta dish from Kraft has become one of my staple weeknight meals. Although it has very few ingredients, it is quite rich and satisfying and can be made in a snap!
Plus, it’s got bacon in it. Everything is better with bacon.
½ lb. fettuccine noodles
4 slices bacon
4 oz. Cream Cheese, cubed
½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
¾ cup milk
1 cup frozen or canned peas
½ tsp. garlic powder
Cook noodles as directed.
Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet until crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside. Reserve 2 Tbsp. of the drippings in skillet. That is usually about what is left in the pan after cooking 4 strips of bacon.
Add the remaining ingredients to the bacon drippings. Go ahead and just dump them all in there. No need to add one at a time and stir until combined. This is a quick and easy pasta dish, remember? And I promise it will turn out just as good.
Cook the mixture on low heat until cream cheese is melted and mixture is well blended and heated through, stirring occasionally. While that mixture heats up, chop the bacon.
Drain the pasta and place it in large bowl. Add cream cheese sauce and the bacon then mix it all together. I usually save some bacon to sprinkle on top.
Mmmmm, so easy and so good.
