Recipes–Penne a la Crème With Bacon, Parma Ham, And Stilton Cheese

The original inspiration for this recipe comes from my own version of Spaghetti Carbonara, a sauce made with bacon, cream, and Parmesan cheese.  This recipe is made without the bacon fat, no Parmesan, but a good portion of Stilton.  The Parma pressed ham adds sweetness.  It is simple to make and delicious!
