Linguine With Garlic Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by lisar

Linguine with bacon, spinach and pine nuts in a creamy garlic sauce. This recipe is from Taste of Home. The only change I would make is to cut back on the amount of cream cheese, to me, it almost overpowered the garlic flavor. I will make it again though, very good!

This was a great recipe. I did make it with less cheese than the recipe called for and added some extra garlic and pepper. It turned out great! I guessed on the spinach and I think it could have used more but it was a hit. Thanks for the recipe Ridgely. It was quick and easy to make.
