"I have to admit whenever I first saw this I was skeptical...but after one bite, I was hooked. It has a flavor that I didn't expect, especially after hearing the ingredients. I don't know where it originally came from as I got this recipe from my mom. Unsure of serving amount...makes quite a bit though."
Serving Size: 1 (160 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"I've been making this recipe for over 5 years now, and I'm shocked I'm just now reviewing it. It might not be the healthiest recipe, but it is delicious! I have made this on multiple occasions for an array of different people, and everyone has always loved it! It is definitely a staple recipe of mine, and when I'm wanting a comfort meal, I make this!"
"I loved this creamy goodness!!! The kids even enjoyed it!!! Thumbs up from my house!!"
"We really enjoyed this dish! I used didn't have cream so I used 1/2 1/2 (and thickened with a tiny bit of corn starch) and added green peas! Fantastic and easy week night dish. Thank you for sharing!!"
"OH MY GOODNESS!!!! SO GOOD!!!! My whole family LOVED this meal. I made it exactly as posted and it was outstanding. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe and God Bless."
"I'm giving this four stars because my husband really liked it, but I thought it was just okay. I was hoping the bacon would give more flavor than it did, but it seemed like the mushrooms overpowered the bacon flavor and I'm not crazy about mushrooms."
"Pretty darn good comfort food. Cook the bacon until it's super crispy and the crunch will hold up in the sauce. I had hopes this would be like a dish I love at one of my favorite restaurants and it didn't disappoint. Thanks!"
"I used 2% milk and made a white sauce with it, I used yellow onions, portabella mushrooms. It came out great and very creamy"
"I served this as a side dish with recipe #176499 and recipe #84440. It was a totally decadent side dish, and did make about 8-10 servings (although as a main dish I would say closer to 4). The only change I made was to use less parmesan since I ran out. Really easy and good. (And I did find it easy enough to make as a side.)"
"I had some pork loin roast left over. Wanted something as a "side". Well this moved everything to a main dish attraction that wowed everyone! I reduced the bacon amount and made medalions of the pork roast. I also included broccoli which I cooked in the pasta water for some color and flavor. Absolutely wonderful recipe and I will be using it again and again as it modifies so easily. Thank you!"
"Yummy-ola! Very similar to my Recipe #209977...without the raw eggs! Love the mushrooms in there (I used canned--it's what I had on hand), and of COURSE the bacon adds that "extra" depth of flavor that you don't get with other meats...smoky and rich. The only thing I did differently, I added about a teaspoon of red pepper flakes and seeds--wowie kazowie! Oh, and I used fettucini instad of bow-ties. KEEPER!!! *Made for PAC Spring 2007*"
"We eat at Johnny Carino's a lot and this is similar to their Bacon Spezzie. Great! We added a few sun dried tomatoes one time and roasted red peppers another, and a little cayenne for heat. Lots of leftovers though, as the kids didn't like it."
"Made this for a barbeque last fall and everyone loved it - especially me. You could probably even call this Bacon Alfredo - Very Yummy!!!"
"This was really good and easy to throw together. I used rigatoni noodles, precooked bacon, extra mushrooms...it's very easy to be flexible with this. I substituted fat free half and half for the whipping cream and 2 cups of parm cheese instead of 1. We're all cheese freaks. I also added 1 lb of cooked chicken. Yummy, and not as salty as I expected with all the bacon."
"I just made this recipe and it was extremely easy and tasted awesome!!! I made this for the second Pick A Chef Contest 2006. This deserves a definate 5 star for creativity. Although I did not put the mushrooms, or green onions in it. I will next time though make a smaller serving since it was just way too much for me to eat. I will be making this again and again!! Excellent job this is a definate keeper!! KUDOS!!"
"I have made this dish quite a few times now and it was at my BF request. He absolutely loves it and has asked me to show him how to make it......lol. My kids also lick their plates clean too. It was simple and easy to make just boil pasta and mix everything in the pan after preparation really. Great recipe for when you really dont want to cook a big meal. Very easy. Thanks kdp"
"OK - I made it with cream, and I don't care if it was bad for me - it was sooo GOOD! It is really rich though! DH loved it and even requested it specially - he never does that! I threw in some frozen green peas at the end while sauce thickened and used extra garlic (but I do that w/ everything!). Great dish - thanks for the recipe kdp!"
"Oooh, yummy yummy in my tummy, as my daughter would say. No peas for me. I used low sodium bacon because the parm cheese is salty enough, in my opinion. I forgot to add pepper but this is just plain ole good food!"
