Prep Time


Cook Time



3 cups: rigatoni pasta

6: bacon strips, diced

2 cloves: garlic, minced

1 1/4 cups: milk

1 (8 ounce) package: cream cheese, cut into cubes

1/2 cup: butter, softened

1/2 cup: freshly shredded Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup: fresh green peas

1/4 cup: diced cooked ham


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook rigatoni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in pan; set bacon aside.

Cook and stir garlic in the remaining bacon grease over medium heat. Add milk, cream cheese, and butter to skillet; stir until smooth. Stir Parmesan cheese, peas, ham, and bacon into cream cheese mixture; cook until peas are heated through, about 5 minutes more. Mix pasta into sauce to serve.
