      KRAFT KITCHEN TIPS: How to Prepare Perfect Pasta - To prepare perfect pasta, follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling salted water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking to the pan, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
    5. 5
      Food Facts - Some cooks prefer to drain the pasta well to prevent excess water from diluting the sauce, while others like a little moisture to help prevent pasta from sticking together. In any case, reserve a few tablespoons of cooking water to add to pasta if it starts to stick together or if you want to dilute the sauce.

      That was really good. I also subbed turkey bacon, reg. diced tomatoes and milk (for the water). I doubled the bacon since I was using turkey bacon. I added some basil, oregano, garlic, and sauteed zucchini. I also added the Parmesan to the sauce. I would say the servings are a little off. I only used 2 cups of noodles and I would say it was more like six servings. This was a light and delicious meal with a little garlic cheese bread!

      It smells great, but looks a little scary. Adding in the pasta later helps with the scariness of the sauce. The taste is great. I used diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano. I also used whipped cream cheese as that is all I had. I used the water and thought at first it would make it too soupy, but it didn't. I did do 3 cups pasta and I would say 6 servings as well. I put the pasta and the sauce in a big bowl to serve and after gently mixing added basil and oregano to the Parmesan cheese to top with. It looked prettier then and the added herbs really added to the overall flavor. We will make this again. Sooooo easy and fast!
