About this recipe: This is my favourite pasta dish when dinner has to be quick and easy, without sacraficing flavour! Bacon, garlic and fresh herbs are added to a fresh creamy sauce and tossed with pasta.

Very nice. I didn't have any single cream, only double so added some milk. Doubled up most of the ingredients, including plenty of fresh herbs. Also added some red and green peppers. A quick, easy, and tasty supper. - 22 Aug 2016
