I’m always on the lookout for new pasta recipes. My husband and I both enjoy pasta, but I normally make it with a red sauce. When I came across a recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo with Bacon I knew it would be a winner. We both enjoy alfredo and my husband loves bacon.
3 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
¾ c. Parmesan cheese
1 t. salt
2 T. fresh parsley, chopped (or 1 T. dried parsley)
1 t. ground black pepper
½ t. nutmeg
1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain (reserving ⅓ c. pasta water) and set aside.
2. While pasta cooks, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook until crisp. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Leave the drippings in the pan.
5. Stir in salt, pepper, and reserved ⅓ c. pasta water. Cook 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in bacon and nutmeg. Serve over top of cooked fettuccine.
Yum, great way to lighten up a classic dish. It sounds delicious.
