Reviews forTortellini Carbonara
"This is one of the family favorites. We actually use it as a side dish. I often use real bacon bits instead of bacon, making it even simpler."
"Very good and easy to prepare."
"I made this exactly like the recipe, except for the brand of bacon. It was amazing! So simple and so good. A definite keeper!"
"This recipe was so simple and so delicious, I can't believe I hadn't tried it before now. While it was great as is, it lends itself to all sorts of wonderful additions as other reviewers have noted."
"Made exactly as stated and it was wonderful!! No leftovers so that always tells me it was a hit. Super simple and delicious! I'm making it again tonight to bring over to my parents to enjoy."
"This dish is ridiculously simple and delicious. I didn't make any changes, only time saving tip, I cooked and chopped bacon for this and another dish ahead, so I could save that step, just need to heat it up! Absolutely LOVE this dish! Well let's face it, bacon, cream, cheese, pasta, what's not to love-although I've had these usual suspects in dishes, it was a completely unique dish, with the perfect flavor combinations."
"This was pretty good. I used chopped ham in place of bacon, added onion, garlic and fresh sauteed mushrooms. I used a substitution for the heavy cream to cut back on the calories and fat. All in all, it was quite good and easy to prepare."
"I made this dish for an afternoon luncheon with my friends. They raved and thought I had worked on it for hours. It was sooooo easy (and delicious!)"
"I'm giving this recipe 5 stars just because it is soooo easy! I am super picky when it comes to good italian food, but the taste is just delicious. I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried Italian herbs. I also added some garlic, extra cheese and peas. Next time I want to add mushrooms too."
