I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us, but otherwise followed the ingredient list right on down, using some homemade pasta sauce that I usually have on hand! Really enjoyed the bacon & green beans in this one! Very satisfying, & the recipe is now in my keeper file! Many thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
