Cheesy Chicken Carbonara with Fettuccine

I got this recipe out of Weight Watchers Comfort Classics. I'd been wanting to make it. I had all the ingredients so that is what I had for dinner. It was sooo yummy! It wasn't creamy like I thought it would be but I really liked it. So, did Jimmy. I used angel hair pasta since that is what I had and reduced calorie parmesan cheese.

The whole thing was easy and not time consuming at all.


6 oz. fettuccine (I used angel hair pasta)
3/4 cup fat free milk
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
4 slices center cut bacon, chopped
1 small onion, chopped (I omitted)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup chopped cooked chicken breast


1. Cook the pasta according to package directions, omitting the salt if desired. Drain and keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, whisk the milk, Parmesan, egg, salt, and pepper in a bowl until blended.

3. Cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until the bacon begins to brown, 3-4 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the onion begins to brown, 2-3 minutes.

4. Add the chicken and cook until heated through, 1-2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium low, add the pasta and milk mixture. Cook, tossing, until the sauce is thickened and creamy, 2-3 minutes.
