      I love easy but tasty pasta recipes. And this one is great. I used chanterelle, because they have season now. Don't cut them, they look too pretty. And I cut the bacon into small stripes. For the rest I followed the recipe as described here. This pasta recipe is full of flavours, which are blended so well by the sauce based on cream. The salty notes of the bacon are great and you don't need to salt the sauce. And although this recipes contains a lot garlic, it is not overhelming the other flavours. I was surprised how well the garlic fits here. I would suggest not to mince all garlic cloves. Cut one or two in thin slices for the look. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.

      Simple and flavourful - a real winner in our house! We love garlic, so this one was perfect for us. The grocer I visited did not have spinach linguine, so we used what we had in the pantry (spagettini). We used half & half for the sauce and probably a bit more than 1/4 of parm (more like 1/2 cup). We took the advice of Thorsten and thinly sliced some of the garlic, in addition to mincing...excellent idea! Thank you so much, Karen, for sharing your recipe. Made for the Cookathon for kzbhansen.
