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!

Delicious sauce! I only used 4 oz. of cream cheese based on Ridgely's description, so the sauce was probably a little thinner, but it was tasty. We served this over angel hair pasta. It was a nice introdution to pine nuts for my kids and they loved them! Thank you!!
