      I did cut this in half for the 2 of us & had enough for a second round, which was great, because this pasta dish is absolutely wonderful! Great flavor combo! I now have it scheduled to make again in a couple of weeks (doubling the recipe) for a potluck we'll be attending! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it!

      Outstanding, luscious, bacony, smooth and so warming on the cold day in January. This dish was empty, and everyone at the table was asking for more. This recipe was a breeze to put together, as I twirled the cheese mixture up in the food processor for a couple of pulses, threw the bacon in the microwave for some quick, crisping, caramelized the onion, added the garlic moved it all together with the cooked pasta. Heaven! Heaven! Tossed in the peas added a dribble of lemon, and sprinkled the top with the crumbled bacon. Thank you so much for a energetic and great dish!

      This was a good filling meal. A lot of steps, but not too complicated :) Both my 8 y/o and 6 1/2 y/o had 2nd. Hubby thought it needed more cheesy sauce, but that could have been that i didn't add enough water at the end. I thought it was very yummy.
