Turkey Linguine with Tomato Cream Sauce

I love an easy weeknight meal! This meal comes together quickly and uses up that half block of cream cheese that ends up in the fridge. —Amy Lents, Grand Forks, North Dakota

    This was very good. I used tagliatelle pasta. I didn’t stir in any bacon, just topped the pasta with the bacon. It was not soupy at all.

    This was so good! Came out a bit soupy but I prefer that to being too dry! The taste was very good. I didnt change a thing. I will make this one often!
