Nice couldn’t do the garlic though in my house my dad is extremely allergic to garlic even the smell of it which is ok because I only like garlic on bread anyway lol.

That is the final product...

I used grape tomatoes, whole wheat pasta, half/half, low sodium bacon, and too much garlic...

Also a pinch of Mrs Dash Spicy, just to give it a kick...

Made at least eight servings, that bowl is ginormous...
