READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by soulmatesforever

This recipe is from the Canadian Cheese company. Excellent! I use only 1/3 of a package of linguine cut the cheese in 1/2 and leave the rest of the ingredients the same for a saucy meal for 2.

REALLY nice. We couldn't get any linguini, so we substituted it with fettucini. I thought the garlic was just the right amount, and you could just taste that bite under the parmeggiano reggiano. Whenever you took a bite of the bacon, though, it really did over power everything else, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, and making sure it was crisp really did provide a nice balance of texture. We just had it on its own, and it was delicious.
