Creamy Tomato Bacon Pasta

One of my favorite websites to get recipes from is Kraftfoods .com. They have pictures (I love that part), are simple and easy, include lots of reviews (a must!), and feature all of the nutrition facts (one of my favorite parts).

This became an immediate family favorite in our household as soon as we had the first bite. It's now become a regular at our dining table!

Creamy Tomato Bacon Pasta


3 cups bow-tie pasta

1 lb.boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces (I just used two breasts)

6 slices of bacon, chopped (I doubled the bacon)

1 can (14-1/2 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained

4 oz. cream cheese, cubed

1/2 cup water

1/4 tsp. pepper

3 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese

(I added in fresh mushrooms)


1. COOK pasta as directed on package.

2. MEANWHILE, cook chicken in large skillet on medium heat 5 to 6 min. or until chicken is done, stirring occasionally. Add bacon, tomatoes, Neufchatel cheese, water and pepper; mix well. Cook 3 min. or until Neufchatel cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently.

3. DRAIN pasta; place in serving bowl. Add sauce; mix lightly. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
