Simple Bacon & Garlic Pasta

By: John Goins from
Simple Bacon  Garlic Pasta
Simple Bacon Garlic Pasta

"Being stuck at home makes you think about what tasty dishes to cook. And now, you have the time to make something good. With just a few pantry staples, you can create a lovely meal that will keep you going. Everyone loves bacon. It’s full of flavor and there’s so much you can do with it. It’s also a good source of protein. You can add some fresh vegetables such as spinach and broccoli to add more nutritional value to the dish. Capers and olives would be nice too. You can also add a bit of cream to the dish. For a French twist, add a bit of nutmeg or tarragon."

One recipe calls for 1 CUP olive oil and the other(both from Copy cat) calls for 1/3 Cup! And it never says when to add it. I'm assuming when you saute the garlic. But how much is Right?? Because that'a big difference in amount!s
