Last night I made a great, easy, and fast dinner that I thought I would share with you guys today.
1/2 pound linguine pasta
1 thick slice bacon
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup cream 1
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for about 7 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain. Remove from pot, cover and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crispy. Break up into small pieces and set aside.
In the pasta pot, melt butter over medium-low heat and add cream; heat thoroughly, but do not allow to boil. Combine cooked pasta with butter/cream mixture. Add Parmesan cheese and bacon; toss well. Allow sauce to thicken for a few minutes; add ground white pepper and nutmeg. Serve immediately.
Now I changed it a little… I did not use Linguini pasta. I used Farfalle pasta and two pieces of bacon. This is not the most light calorie meal but it tastes sooo good and it is fast to make!
