      We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make recipe. I love that it is so versatile. I had to substitute a few ingredients, even after doing this it still tasted great. Lovely flavors and textures. The mozzarella is a nice contrast to the bacon and tomato. Made exactly as written but used a variety of small pastas, dried parsley and coarsely squished whole tomatoes. I was also pretty heavy handed with the red pepper flakes . Thank you for sharing your recipe, it was a nice comfort dish on a cold winter evening.

      While I have to admit I did not use penne, but a mix of macaroni and fusilli, I was careful to follow the recipe otherwise with the exception of a tad bit more cheese as my cutting was inexact. Both hubby and I agreed that this was a 3-star recipe. The flavors were OK, but there was just something missing. Maybe some cream or white sauce would have helped? Perhaps marinara sauce instead of tomatoes? Maybe some oregano? (I just couldn't put my finger on it.) In any case, don't be afraid to try this - it really wasn't bad. It was just disappointing after seeing all the 5-star reviews.

      This was good.. I added some grana padano to the mozzarella mixture and also used italian spiced tomatoes. I'll make it again, thanks!
