Ravioli Carbonara

It's a cold and snowy day here in Chicagoland. I'm actually enjoying it for once because it looks so pretty and it really gets me into the Holiday Spirit. Plus, it's Sunday so I don't need to be outside driving in it! Cold and snowy weather also has me craving comfort food. Nothing says comfort food like this creamy Ravioli Carbonara. I also lightened it up so you can enjoy it without feeling guilty!

Ravioli Carbonara
Serves 6
Cal 291, Carbs 35.6, Fat 9g, Fiber 2g, Protein 15

1 package frozen cheese ravioli
1 can petite tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup milk (I used 2 percent)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. light cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon or bacon bits

In a large sauce pan over medium heat whisk together milk, cream cheese, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese. Once thickened add in ravioli, tomatoes, and bacon. Toss to coat. Continue cooking for 5-7 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan if desired. Enjoy!
