    I have to say, it was a little difficult to follow along and felt like some steps weren't covered. It says that a cup of heavy cream is required but I don't see you use all of it or ever touch base on not using all of it. I also got lost when you said we would be using the remaining bacon grease in the sauce? Never did see you use that so I didn't either. However, whatever I did.. or didn't do.. it turned out tasty. Thanks for the dish!

    Tasted great. You could add about a 1/4 cup of more cream if you wanted a more 'wet' sauce.

    Delish!! 😋 I’d probably try the quinoa pasta, I tried it with the brown rice pasta and is a bit chewy. Otherwise very hearty and cheesy!👌🏻
