Creamy pasta with bacon and herbs

    30 min

    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
