"This was absolutely disgusting. There was no flavor at all. I spit out my second bite. We had to order Chinese. Very disappointing"

"I made the dish by following the recipe. I was disappointed in it. The dish was bland. There was not the bacon flavor that I expected. There was no flavor that stood out. I will not make this again."

"I made the sauce with milk, instead of cream, and I omitted the eggs. It was creamy and delightfully delicious."

"This is a lot like spaghetti carbonara which I absolutely love... I used a 16 oz. box of spaghetti - next time, I will use bite sized pasta (i.e. penne or farfalle) because I found the noodles really hard to toss with the very thick sauce... Which, speaking of the sauce, I'm not sure if flour is really even that necessary in this recipe... I may try it without next time. Oh, and it may be salty enough for some, but I had to add some to my taste, and some freshly ground black pepper. Overall, I could have eaten several portions of this last night!! I served bruschetta/Italian bread with it for a very satisfying meal!"

"The sauce is awful, it turned out very clumpy and had a strong egg taste and odor. Maybe I did something wrong but the finished product looked nothing like the photo and tasted horrible. I won't be making this again."
