Ginny, I enjoyed this meal so much! It was just far enough out of my "box" that I felt daring and yet it was so easy to prepare. I really enjoyed the bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan and pine nuts combination with the whipped cream! So tasty over the linguine! Thanks, Ginny, for the lovely supper!
I fould this recipe years ago in the Bon Appetit archives. Wonderful combination!! Yummers1
This was quite yummy! I modified it a bit to our tastes and still turned out well. How can you go wrong with things like bacon, sun-dried tomatoes and whipping cream!?!?
