Dinner time should be quick and easy and this recipe will save you time in the kitchen and give you more time to relax after a day at work.

This recipe for a creamy, bacon and garlic pasta dish calls for fresh cream instead of a béchamel sauce. While a béchamel sauce is absolutely delicious, the cream in this meal makes the pasta lighter and adds a luxurious silky texture to the dish without the added carbs of flour from a white sauce.

If you are looking for something to satisfy your cravings and really serve as comfort food, this is the dish for you.
