You can never go wrong with pasta!
Am I right?? Pasta recipes are always well received with my family. And in fact, pasta is one of a few dishes that my entire family will eat without any complaints. Because of that, we are always on the look out for delicious pasta dishes. I had seen a recipe for Pasta Carbonara in one of my KRAFT magazines a long time ago and remembered thinking it looked really good. I looked it up a few weeks ago and after seeing that cream cheese and bacon were involved, I knew I had to give it a try.

You guys know I’m all about simple, yummy dinner ideas and this Spaghetti Carbonara is one of those. It’s a creamy, cheesy spaghetti filled with bacon and other delicious flavors like garlic, Italian seasoning and parsley. I haven’t decided whether I like it better than our regular Spaghetti, but I’m thinking it’s pretty close.
Like I mentioned before, the kids love pasta so you better believe they loved this dish. I may have had to omit the parsley for a few of the kids, but other than that, it was a hit! I will definitely be adding this to the meal rotation because it’s so tasty and so simple.
