    ciggy99's Note:

    If you want something different, and love pasta, you'll like this. I can't take credit for this, it was made up by my Mom one day when she wanted something different to eat. She was an an amazing cook. I had her make it many more times. Thank goodness I had her teach me this one, many other's I wish I'd paid better attention to.

      Made as given, though I seasoned it with lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P! Easy to make & a great new way for me to serve up macaroni! Definitely a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]

      I made this using elbow macaroni and 4 slices of bacon. I really liked how quick this was to make and how good it tasted. I'll definitely make this often. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

      Fast and easy comfort food! I used the precooked bacon so added a little margarine to fry it and the pasta in. I used whole wheat rotini and loved it with the salty bacon and garlic. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012
