Reviews for Spaghetti with Eggs and Bacon
"I was skeptical about this recipe, but figured I would give it a try. I am very happy I did. This dish was amazingly delicious! It's a good mixture, that I am excited to make again. It has a good blend of flavors and very simple to make."
"This recipe barely has any ingredients and I wanted to almost add something extra but resisted. I am glad I did my husband really liked this recipe as is. He said it is very creamy and has a good bit of saltiness with the cheese and bacon."
"I was really hungry one morning and decided to make a much smaller version of this dish, and was blown away... I didn't have any bacon but it was really nice and smooth and creamy, and very satisfying. Yum. This field editor says "Bravo!""
"I made this recipe as it was written but served with pesto on the side for my family to add as they pleased. Another reviewer's addition of onion when frying the bacon along with fresh ground pepper would be something I'd try if I make this again. I always add garlic paste along with a dash of salt when cooking pasta, so I would not need to add garlic to the onion/bacon mixture. Overall I liked it, but without the pesto, it was a little bland. Note: I used 1/2 of a 16 oz. box of thin spaghetti but didn't use all of the egg, cream, cheese mixture. Maybe would try using the entire box the next time or a thicker noodle such as fettucini."
"Looking forward to trying this..I love to eat healthy, but eating healthy does not mean complete abstinence from fat... I love that taste of home includes this type of recipe. Thank you..."
