I make this a while back and it has become a family favorite! I have made it numerous times and it is always a popular request for dinner! Everyone loves it!
I made this recipe and everyone raved about it. They said it was one of the best recipes that I ever made.
This dish is totally awesome! I can't wait to eat the leftovers the next day. It is so quick and easy to make it's almost sinful. I tried it with shrimp cooked in the bacon drippings, and it turned out great also. Next time I am going to try cooking the shrimp in a couple tablespoons of Land O'Lakes butter. Hope you try and enjoy this recipe as much as I did/do.
Oh My! This is a keeper! My husband (who's basically "meh" on pasta dishes) LOVED this! Now every time I make bacon, he asks if I'm going to make that "pasta thing with the bacon"So easy ! Win for me!
Wonderfu l recipe. Great flaver. Will make again.
Great dish, will make again
This was such a hit with the family. I am going to make it again and use the leftover Easter ham. Thank you so much.
Love this dish! Really delicious and economical too!A Big hit with all my friends.
This recipe is definitely a keeper. I will make this one again and again. It was a huge hit with the entire family.
Everyone in the family loved it and it was great leftover as well!
There are only two of us so I halved the recipe. We liked it very much, but we both like it saucier, so when I make it again, I will half the main ingredients, but I'll keep the sauce as is.
I made this recipe without the chicken and added a little more bacon since my husband won't eat chicken and we both loved it. When I make it for others I will use chicken and just scoop some out for my husband before I add the chicken. Will definitely add to our favorites.
I made this tonite, relish! My husband said it should be in the menu cycle, he loved it. Yummy.
This is a great dish. I made it once and I am making it again. My family loves it.
I made this recipe after the recommendation of my mom and WOW..... it is wonderful!!! I made a double batch and all it needed was salt!!! Loved it, new regular dinner at my house for sute!!
My husband and I loved this! It was so easy and tasty too! Next time I will double the sauce.
This was a very satisfying and tastey meal. I didn't have gemelli pasta so I used rotinni and I didn't have regular Parmesan cheese so I used the
Correction, I substituted the bacon for turkey bacon*
I this today to the T (except(substituted turkey bacon for regular bacon)) and had a few extras of the ingredients called for but the sauce. I like the sauce a lot. But it needs some salt I think(just a little-Im not some salt freak lol) But when I reheat this yummy dish for leftovers I will add some more of the bacon and some more sauce yes. I have to note that by not adding the real bacon, i may have compromised some of the flavor that turkey bacon does not offer but that was OK with me as I try to stay away from as much pork as I can!...Beautiful dish and had a great time making it as I didn't find myself lost in the process hehe...hope everyone enjoys as my husband and I did:)thank you again!
This recipe was very good- I didn't have any cream so I just made a roux and used milk instead. You could definitely play with the flavors and add some herbs to make this more exciting; it's a pretty basic recipe that allows for flexibility. Will keep this in my recipe book.

Am I alone in my love-hate relationship with summertime s’mores? Don’t get me wrong, they are amazing. However, my consumption bliss is short-lived as I try to corral 30 sticky fingers covered in s’more fall-outs before they touch the dog, play in the sandbox, or use my shirt as a napkin.
