My daughter had planned to write-up her favorite pasta dish for my blog a few months ago. It all started with an idea she had a couple of months ago. We carefully made, and tested, and re-tested the recipe several times to make sure it was the creamiest, most delicious it could be.
Then, life happens and she wasn’t able to complete this due to an injury. Once school started, she had too much school work to do to catch up. We have been sitting on this recipe because she really wants to be the one to write the post.
“I felt guilty holding this recipe from you, because I really believe it is going to rock your world.
I was going to make this recipe for dinner and discovered I didn’t have a bag of gluten free pasta.
(I don’t think we will ever get sick of this sauce…it is that good!)
I did have a lot of potatoes, and hence this recipe was adapted into a cheesy bacon lovers’ side dish.
