How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 450ºF.
Cover rimmed baking sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray. Combine cauliflower, bacon and garlic; spread onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 18 to 22 min. or until cauliflower is tender and bacon is crisp, stirring after 12 min.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
Drain pasta; cover to keep warm. Cook broth and cream cheese in same saucepan on medium heat 3 to 5 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended, stirring frequently. Stir in 2 tsp. sage.
Add pasta to cream cheese sauce; stir until evenly coated. Add cauliflower mixture and Parmesan; cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through. Spoon into serving bowl; sprinkle with remaining sage.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Balance out this pasta dish with a crisp green salad tossed with your favourite Kraft Dressing.
Since the pasta pan is already warm from cooking the pasta, it not only heats the sauce more quickly, but it also prevents you from having to use another pan to make the sauce.
For extra heat, use 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper.
