Ive been making this recipe for years (I am a CL subscriber too) and love it! I typically add a little more bacon for some crunch and saltiness. This meal is very light so if you are looking for a hardy meal... you might not be so satisfied.
I liked this quite a bit, but the husband wasn't a bit fan. He enjoyed the bacon and peas but felt the sauce needed a bit more flavor. I'll definitely make this again, when he's not around!
