Super delicious!! Easy, filling pasta dish that I came up with after looking at another recipe that took way too long and had too many steps! I also made it more "diet friendly".

Really great! YUM!!! I used more time I would cut down on the bacon, it was a little salty for me. However, I never use salty to me is probably normal for someone else. To make it lower in fat I used Evaporated Skim Milk and it was still rich and delicious! A definite regular for me! OH....and I served it over Tortellini. Thanks for a great recipe!
