Step 1

Cook the pasta according to the package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/4 cup cooking liquid; set aside.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon; cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon.

Step 3

Add the onion and carrot to the drippings in the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the stock, bring to a boil. Add the peas and cook 2 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the reserved 1/4 cup cooking liquid, bacon, thyme, salt, pepper. Simmer sauce for a bit on low to let it thicken, then add the cream cheese. Stir to combine. Add the pasta to the pan and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



We really enjoyed this simple to make dish. We did double everything and used the whole 8 ounces of "light" cream cheese. I also used the whole package of bacon (16 ounces). Very good and filling too! Thanks for sharing!
