      What a fabulous dish, we loved this, flavoursome, quickly made and yet deeply satisfying. I used a can of tomatoes, and thyme and chives from the garden. This for me is a total keeper, thank you Lori Mama!!!! Made for I Recommed tag game

      We liked this, but i twas a tad dry. In re-reading the recipe I found I had forgotten to add the pasta water, duh! I added some cream and it was much better. Also, I had no white wine, so I used vodka. My herbs were sage, parsley and thyme. (no rosemary, sorry, Simon and Garfunkel!) Thanks for posting, made for Everyday's a Holiday, 2013

      This was a great new way to serve pasta and mix things up a bit! I think the key to this recipe is using a thick, meaty bacon, which I was lucky to have on hand. I am a big leek fan, but I would definitely stress to use only the white parts. Rather than use fresh tomatoes, I added a 14.5 oz. can of diced fire-roasted tomatoes, which was ideal. The Boursin that I used was flavored with shallots and chives, so I used chives and parsley as my mixed herbs. While the Boursin and canned tomatoes made the sauce creamy enough, I found I had to thin it a bit with some of the pasta water. I sprinkled parmesan cheese on my cooked penne, then added the sauce to the pasta. It made an easy, quick-to-fix Friday night dinner. Thanks for sharing.
