"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'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."
