    I made it the first time and my boyfriend loves it! The ingredients are simple and the steps are easy to follow, which is my favorite thing about this recipe because I am a busy person and usually come home late. I would suggest adding a little bit of salt into the sauce before tossing it with the pasta, but that's just my opinion. Next time I would add come chopped red bell pepper into the recipe to make the plate more colorful. I definitely will make this recipe again!

    Super yummy and easy! The Philadelphia Cooking crème really adds a perfect flavor for this pasta. My family aren't very big pea fans (I love them!) so you may want to only do about half the peas. And next time I think I might even use more bacon because no recipe can ever have too much bacon :)
