Cook's Notes

This sauce can be made a day or two ahead (keep bacon separate) and refrigerated. Gently reheat as the pasta boils; add bacon to sauce during the last few minutes of heating.

    Unfortunately, I found this bland - I had to spruce it up with an assortment of seasonings (garlic powder, chipotle chili powder, cayenne, etc.). It tasted great and rich in the end, but needs a little extra something something.

    This is a "must try"! I had white button and portabella mushrooms on hand so that's what I used. I also used a little extra bacon and served it over whole wheat linguine. I must say that this is definitely a keeper, truly delicious and memorable. I prepared it 2 nights ago and already crave it again. Btw, I'm a retired professional chef. Thanks for the recipe!

    A great recipe. For mine yesterday I took out the bacon, and added carrots instead.

    I made this without the bacon (vegetarian), added a little garlic and it was really delicious. I will definitely make it again and recommend it.
