      This recipe saved my Sunday night meal when all I had sitting in the kitchen was bacon, asparagus, and penne pasta. This was quick and easy and had a great, light flavor. I agree with Nif's review. Don't be frightened by the amount of garlic or thyme. It came out juuuuust right!

      We really enjoyed this! I used half the garlic, lemon and thyme because I thought it would be too much for my family (I like more flavour - they're not as adventurous). I was wrong! I think that the amounts listed would be just right. I followed the directions but forgot to reserve some of the pasta water and I didn't miss it. Made for Newest Zaar Tag. Thanks ellie_! :) ** Note - the leftovers were terrific the next day cold!
