Ham and Swiss Capellini With Mushrooms

I got this cookbook for Christmas and have been enjoying trying new recipes. I wasn't crazy about this dish, but Jud really liked it.  Left-overs were even better.  What I really liked about it is that dinner was ready from start to finish in about 20 minutes.

6 ounces whole wheat angel hair pasta
2 slices center cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1 cup diced celery
1 medium zucchini, diced
4 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese
1 1/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
1 cup reduced-fat Swiss cheese shreds
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shreds
1 cup 97% lean ham, cut into cubes
1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
1. Prepare pasta as directed on package; set aside.
2. Meanwhile, saute bacon in a large non-stick skillet. Add onion, mushrooms, celeri and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add cubed cream cheese and stir constantly over low heat. Add milk, cheeses, ham, salt and pepper.
hrough until all cheese is melted. Stir in pasta and serve. (May add additional milk if mixture is too thic
Makes 4 servings
