I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks when we moved. I bookmarked it when I was going through books to keep and books to donate. I thought with a few tweaks, this might be really good. Well, I was right. We both absolutely loved this!! It was incredible. It reminded both of us of our favorite carbonara recipe.
This Bacon and Beef Pasta can be made ahead of time and frozen or refrigerated until ready to bake. All you need is a side salad and some garlic bread and dinner is ready. This would be great for holiday dinner parties. I know I plan on making this again very soon. I can't stop thinking about how great this pasta casserole tastes. We usual make lasagna on Christmas Eve, but I might make this instead. SO good!!
