Herbed Cream Pasta with Bacon
During summer my husband and I attend a fair amount of gatherings and besides the amazing company at such events my favorite thing is all the variety of dishes that are always at these gatherings. I LOVE LOVE LOVE potlucks! I really can’t get enough of them and having the chance to explore the variety of dishes that potluck gatherings give us the opportunity to partake in.
So because of my love for potlucks when a fellow blogger asked some of us to take part in a virtual potluck for a dear friend of hers (who is also a blogger) I couldn’t resist. I will be arming my recipe arsenal with plenty of new must try recipes and I get to meet a few wonderful ladies along the way that I am sure I never would have mingled with before. Amazing how bonds can be formed!
Take a walk with me (or shall I say read with me) and learn about Christy’s story and why her friend Robin felt she needed to know that plenty of us are sending her good thoughts.
Now I don’t know Christy but her story is pretty cool and I got lost in reading her AMAZING recipes, I must say mine pales in comparison, but mostly I got lost with her sense of humor. Really this post about 100 Reasons Why I’m Not A Cowgril: Baking Brownies With Two Broken Legs was just to much for me. I can see someone doing all this and thinking I sit back and think to myself…would I have the motivation or the frame of mind to be baking brownies with two broken legs? Probably not and sure as heck not while my husband wasn’t home. So this virtual potluck is for Christy (pass along good thoughts to her) during her recovery and it’s great to see that she is holding her head high and I hope that she never loses her sense of humor though everything!
The Cast Of Herbed Cream Pasta with Bacon
16 oz. Fettuccine Pasta
Thick Cut Bacon
1 ½ cup Heavy Cream
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 teaspoon Rosemary
Garlic to taste
½ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Directions For Herbed Cream Pasta with Bacon
1. Boil pasta according to package instructions.
2. In a separate pan, fry bacon until slightly crispy.
3. Melt butter in medium saucepan, over medium-low heat.
4. Add rosemary and stir for 1 minute to combine
5. Add heavy cream and garlic and heat through.
**Tip – Heavy cream does not like high heat, so be sure to keep it from boiling. Just a low simmer.
6. Add parmesan cheese and melt into the sauce.
7. Toss cheese sauce over pasta and top with bacon.
8. Serve with a green salad and because I love garlic bread it’s a must as well.
Herbed Cream Pasta with Bacon was made and eaten with delight by my family with you in mind. I wish you the best of luck and hope that you enjoy these virtual hugs that my family is sending your way!
