Pasta Boscaiola

I don’t make cream-based pasta often because D doesn’t like them. However I’ve wanted to try this recipe for quite some time, and it turns out wonderful. Even D liked it! Creamy pasta sauce could be a little overwhelming and heavy at times, but this one is quite light. It’s really easy to throw together and doesn’t need additional salt because I find the bacon is savory enough for my liking. Delicious comfort food which takes less than half an hour to prepare – yes please!
