I trimmed the fat on the bacon and cooked it without the oil. Used macaroni noodles since that's what I had and omitted the cayenne pepper. Used Chef John's recipe for crème fraiche but used 1 1/2 cup of it. After tossing it, I tasted it and it was missing something. I squeezed 1/2 lemon and that made a huge improvement. My husband loved it, my son not so much even though he's a fanatic of bacon. He didn't like the taste of arugula. I liked it. The arugula did over power the salad. The next time, I'm going to try fresh baby spinach and 1/2 the batch, except for the bacon, since it made a huge amount.
