Creamy Chicken Carbonara Pasta



I know traditional carbonara pastas are made with egg but I'm just not down with eggs and pasta. So, I've created my own egg free skinnier version of a popular past dish. It's a perfect easy weeknight meal and so delicious!

Creamy Chicken Carbonara Pasta
Serves 8
WW PP=8
Cal 314, Carbs 43.7g, Fat 7.5g, Fiber 2.1g, Protein 17.5g


Ingredients
1 16oz. box pasta of your choice (I used bowties)
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1/2 cup crumbled bacon (I used bacon bits)
1/2 cup peas
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat milk
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Boil pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.

While pasta is cooking in a large saucepan whisk together cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add in the garlic and parmesan cheese. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add in the chicken, bacon, and peas. Add noodles and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
