Good! Made this tonight for dinner as I had everything on hand. I used less bacon and added several sprigs of fresh thyme after reading bluemoon downunder's review. I used low-fat cottage cheese but did not find that it melted down, maybe because it was low-fat version or because my gnocchi wasn't hot enough. Thanks for posting - I don't make pasta often but would use it again.
An easy to make, no-fuss and very tasty pasta dish. I used a low-fat cottage cheese and it added as much creaminess as we wanted without adding as many calories as some of the more often used alternatives. :) Loved the bacon in this - always love bacon - but I wanted this to be a one dish meal, so although I'd used middle rashers with little fat, I only needed to add a little oil to my non-stick pan to saute some chopped garlic, onions and mushrooms with a little fresh thyme. I added only a pinch of the optional salt and several generous grindings of the optional black pepper. With bacon such a significant ingredient here, use the best you can find. We really enjoyed this, and I enjoyed some reheated next day for lunch. It reheats well in the microwave. Thanks for sharing another yummy recipe, Lainey. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
