    This was a quick and tasty dinner to put together. I cut the pasta in half but left the rest and got 3 servings. I used bacon from the "fancy" meat store we treat ourselves to on occasion and it was delicious in the pasta, not over powering or too salty. I would add some herbs next time. Made for PRMRT

    very good. I skipped the oil as the bacon has enough fat in it to cook by itself; otherwise I followed the directions as written for a very easy and good dinner accompanied with salad. Thanks for sharing!

    I used home grown silverbeet for this and also rice vermicelli instead of wheat pasta due to children with intolerances. It was a great success and very flavourful - I did not even have to add salt and pepper. Sliced ham went into it instead of bacon and also I scattered in a few mushies - all together a great dinner with some lunch leftovers.
