This recipe was very yummy and so easy to make! I used turkey bacon instead of ham, since it's what I had on hand (I omitted the salt since ham or bacon are so salty). I also used 2 cloves of garlic since I really like garlicky flavor. I used rotini instead of spaghetti, and I imagine you could use just about any pasta shape.
