  • 2 packages Fiber Gourmet Pasta (to order- https://www.netrition.com/cgi/goto.cgi?aid=4549

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 4 cups light shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  • Place the bacon in a large pan over medium high heat. Cook until crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels.

  • Add the flour, then whisk until combined, about 30 seconds.

  • Pour in the water and whisk until smooth and just thickened.

  • Add the milk and whisk until combined.

  • Stir in the pasta, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and pepper, then bring the mixture to a simmer.

  • Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is done.

  • Turn the heat to low, then stir in the cheddar cheese. Keep stirring until the sauce is smooth. If you need to thin the sauce, add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  • Stir in half of the bacon.

  • Sprinkle the remaining bacon over the top, along with the parsley. Serve immediately.
