    Baz's Note:

    From the excellent Australian Women's Weekly series, the Italian Cooking Class Cookbook. Recipe in the book only uses 1/3 cup of cream and suggests 250g of pasta whereas I use a whole cup of cream (usually light) and 500g of pasta. Fettucini or tagliatelle is more traditional but my kids prefer it with penne. You can also add a teaspoon of minced garlic while cooking the bacon (before adding the cream and paprika) if you like.
