My husband and I loved this recipe. I know enough not to put the garlic with the bacon. I added it when I put the milk and Parmesan in so it would have time to flavor the food but would not burn. I will make this over and over. Added one slice more bacon which worked fine.

This us a very tasty recipe. I agree that the garlic must not be put in and fried with the bacon. It will burn. Put it in when you put the milk, Parmesan in. Great taste. I added 1 cup parmesan instead of 3/4 cup.

grace 2010: You may need to re-read the recipe. It does not say to cook the bacon and garlic "together," as you stated in your review. The recipe simply states to "cook until crisp." Common-sense must come into play here--simply add the garlic to the already-cooking bacon to avoid burning the garlic!

I'm not sure why this recipe includes milk & yogurt - we make this all the time and, to insure the pasta has enough "sauce", remove a cup of water from the pot before draining. Then it can be added slowly after the pasta is tossed with the egg mixture if it seems dry. And, when garnishing with the bacon, add fresh parsley if you have it - adds delicious flavor!

I made the recipe. It was ok. I didn't think it had much taste, though. Per the comment from Shirley the recipe did not say anything about adding the garlic or bacon so I just threw it in at the end.

Great go-to meal when you have a bunch of odds and ends in your fridge! I don't know that I would have titled it the same way, but it's delicious. The bacon is a garnish that makes the dish complete.

I have not tried the recipe, but it sounds delicious. This is one version of the recipe just as there are different versions of chocolate cake or tiramisu. All are great. The one thing that I might try to do, however, if you fear burning the bacon is to cook bacon first, remove, then cook the fresh garlic.

Grace2010 putting quote marks around a word doesn't make it so. Read the directions carefully.

My comment about this recipe is this - As I read the first line and it said to fry the bacon and the garlic "together" until crisp! I said to myself....the garlic would BURN in the length of time it would take to "crisp" the bacon. Burnt garlic is not nice.

Shirley, I'm with you on this. The recipe is not complete in that regard. Not the first time I've seen recipes on the site incomplete or written incorrectly.
