I had a taste for bacon. REALLY wanted bacon. Figured it would go good in the pasta dish and looked to find something online. Had all the ingredients for this dish except creme fraiche. Substituted plain Greek yogurt and it tasted just fine. Like "second helping" fine. Thanks to the international flavour here at DC I didn't even have to google a "rasher of bacon".
