  • Sounds so delicious and simple to make. How much pasta would you need for this amount though

  • Nice and easy ! I would use some basil instead of parsley.


  • Great recipe – thanks for Phillips sharing it.


  • A little onion or garlic would be nice added too.


  • just love pasta of all kinds, going to try this tonight


  • We don’t eat meat but do eat fish. The cooking salmon would be a perfect replacement for the bacon.


  • Made something similar the other night, but it tasted too salty.. Maybe I added too much bacon? Will try your version next. Thanks for the recipe
