About this recipe: A simple pasta dish using store-cupboard staples.
very good, quick easy meal. I did not have turkey bacon on hand so I used very lean center cut bacon. I didn't see the point of using garlic powder and fresh garlic so I used 3 cloves of fresh garlic in place of the garlic powder and added a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, I also upped the basil, and added some oregano too. I am not a canned pea person so I used frozen peas and cooked a few minutes longer. - 03 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Pasta the way it oughta be - fresh tasting and lightly dressed. But...I used fresh, diced, red-ripe tomatoes,no garlic powder, no dried basil. I used bright green, frozen peas, not bothering to cook them. I used regular bacon and found I needed to add some butter to the pasta at the end. I didn't measure anything, just added and tossed till it was delicious and looked right. - 19 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I thought this recipe was great, but I did make a few additions to it. I added: 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp cayenne red pepper and 1/4 tsp Coriander. I added all the additional ingredients at the same time as with the garlic and basil. I didn't have fresh basil, so I added 1 tsp of dried basil. Kids loved it. - 28 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
