I loved being able to leave out the cream! Thanks for a delicious alternative recipe. Made for a pretty normal Tuesday evening. :)

This was quick and easy to put together and have on the table! I used a shallot and dried parsley but otherwise made as directed. It was a nice change from spaghetti and meat sauce or one of the boxed pastas that my DS's love! Made for Everyday Holiday.

I liked this easy and quick recipe, but next time I will drain off part of the bacon grease. Thanks Katew for posting. Made for the Chic Chefs for Zaar World Tour 4 Zingo.
