    This is a delicious Italian pasta, which is very similar to carbonara. Linguine is tossed with crisp bacon in a creamy Parmesan sauce. Serve with a side salad.

    I increased this to feed our family and it was great. A few changes to accomodate what I had on hand: I had no cream so instead I used 2% milk, so after melting the butter, I added a few pinches of flour to ensure I'd have a thicker sauce. I used regular black pepper and threw in some crushed red pepper for kick and left out the nutmeg. Whole family enjoyed this and I love how easy and quick it was to throw together.

    Yum! This is so rich and delicious. I added asparagus bites to it so I felt a little bit healthier while eating it!  -  10 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
