      We all agreed this is the best pasta dish we have had in a long time!!! The bacon really makes the sauce stand out. I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I am so happy to have found this recipe, Jellyko. Thanks for sharing.

      This was really tasty. Ran out of fresh garlic, so I threw some powdered garlic in which seemed to work fine. Next time, I might save some crumbled bacon for the top. The bacon looses its crispiness in the sauce. It might be nice to toss some on the top right before serving.
