    westivan's Note:

    A firm favourite in our house - creamy and full of flavour. I really like the curly fettuccine but any pasta shape will do. The original recipe in Super Food Ideas magazine called for 97% fat-free bacon, which is hard to get here and quite expensive, so I use shortcut bacon or middle rashers as a second choice with the visible fat removed.

      This was fantastic! I even totally screwed it up and it was still great! I used regular bacon as well and quite a bit of it (about 3/4 of a pkg). After the first batch of bacon cooked to crispyness I started the second batch and threw in the onions... big mistake I forgot the moisture in the onion wouldn't allow the bacon to crisp up. So I cooked it a very long time and between trying to keep my son out of the cupboards,away from the stove, and trying to tend to the rest of dinner they burned. So we were onionless but I salvaged a few of the bacon pieces from that batch. After the chaos I had trying to switch skillets and all I ended up with a very attractive looking pasta dish that tasted wonderful. I will definately make this again with my obvious mistakes in mind!

      We really enjoyed this dish! It is a great reduced fat recipe, which went with our WW points system very well. I stopped and drained the onion/bacon on a paper towel to remove the extra grease. I also used whole wheat fettuccine. We will make this again for sure. The sauce was creamy and the flavor was very good. Reviewed for Zingo!

      This is very good and that translated to excellent when you take into account that it's very low fat. It doesn't take a long time to make and really just hit's tha spot with a crisp salad.
