Spinach Bacon Shells and Cheese

This recipe is great if you have little ones who are picky eaters and you are trying to sneak some veggies into their meal. It's so full of cheesy goodness that they won't even realize that there are veggies in it! (at least my little man didn't!)

Spinach Bacon Shells and Cheese
Serves 8
Cal 291, Carbs 41.2, Fat 7.5, Fiber 1.7, Protein 13.3

16 oz. medium shell pasta
3 cups fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon (I used bacon bits)
2 tbsp. reduced fat cream cheese
1.25 cups reduced fat shredded Italian cheese blend
3/4 cup fat free milk
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan whisk together cream cheese and milk. Once thickened slow whisk in the cheese. When cheese is melted add in the spinach, tomatoes, and pasta. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
