Delicious and Easy!

My husband loves bacon. I loved the flavor, but do not necessarily love the bacon itself. He was happy because he had extra bacon and I was happy because I had a delicious pasta.

Easy to Prepare and Well Received

This dish was delicious! My husband and I both love pasta alfredo, so this was a nice alternative! I did add some crushed red pepper to the sauce, though, in order to give the dish a bit more of a kick. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. It was so quick and simple to put together and we had a wonderful, creamy meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Creamy, Cheesy, EASY!

my family loved this meal. They love bacon and I don't make it that offen so it was a treat. It was easy and quick...will make again

easy, tasty

Both my husband and I loved this meal! I was surprised at how much flavor this had. Making sure the eggs are at room temperature was key to a creamy sauce.

I used turkey bacon, minced garlic from a jar and thawed the peas separately on the stove, followed the rest of the recipe as is. So good! Will add this to the rotation.

Easy to make; flavorful
