Quarantine Eats: Everything Bagel Pasta

1 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. panko bread crumbs
2-3 tablespoons of Everything Bagel Seasoning
4 c. water
2 tsp. kosher salt
8 oz. short pasta
5 oz. cream cheese
Thinly sliced chives, for garnish

1 - In a small skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add in bread crumbs and stir until toasted and golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Add in everything bagel seasoning, stirring until well-combined, 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.

2 - In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring water and salt to a boil. Add in pasta and let cook until al dente, about 6 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain pasta and set aside.

3 - Return pot to low heat. Add in ½ cup reserved pasta water and cream cheese, whisking until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add in cooked pasta and toss in sauce to coat evenly. If a thinner sauce is desired, gradually add in remaining pasta water until ideal consistency is achieved.

4 - Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning bread crumbs and chives before serving.
