“What makes this dish stand out is the tomato-basil sauce, ground beef and bacon, and heavy cream to create a rich hearty meal, your family will think you spent all day in the kitchen lol! This complete recipe takes no more than about 35 minutes, but of coarse if you wish you can cook it longer before adding in the whipping cream at the end. You can use your own favorite pasta sauce for this if desired. If you don't have a large enough skillet the use a medium saucepan.”
