Wow! I made a do over of a fatty recipe I had. This was a huge hit in my home. It doesn't taste low fat at all. It has all of the richness of a high fat pasta dish. I made it at 10.5 grams of fat per serving, with the Bacon. Fool anyone with this dish. They will never know it is lower fat than the typical. Creamy pasta dishes out there.
