It was light, filling, scrumptious and lovely as ever.
In my humble opinion, she was right on about the amount of bacon. I fried up the whole package before realizing it was twice what she called for. I didn't put it all in the pasta, but it was still plenty bacony. And I looooove bacon!
However, I also think you could have put in a bunch more mushrooms! I love mushrooms too, and had a 16 oz. package and should have thrown in the whole package!
It does call for cream and half and half but only 1 1/4 cups and throwing that on a whole pound of pasta, it doesn't seem like that much. Just enough.
All I was missing was crusty bread and a caesar salad! (we were in a rush tonight, but hey I cooked...and after this week I had!)
I love the Pioneer Woman.
I love her bacon-wrapped jalepeno thingies.
I love her cajun chicken pasta.
I love love love her olive cheese bread!
