      Excellent one dish meal. Used 2 cloves garlic and tsp red pepper flakes. The cheese I used was smoked gouda and added a bit of the pasta water which kept it moist. Great way to use ingredients you already have.

      Great recipe! I had to keep pushing my husband out of the kitchen because he kept coming back for "one more sample". I used a blend of asiago and parm cheese along with Ken's Ceaser dressing. I also used Hormel real bacon bits because I didn't have time to cook the bacon up. Will definitely be adding this to my summer BBQ rotation.

      Nice recipe I will make again as it comes together so quickly! I used the lemon (YUM, always!), as well as using shredded asagio/romano/parm blend for the cheese I used Girard's light Caesar dressing. *Made for Sept. 2009 Aussie Swap Tag*
