Pasta with Bacon and Cream

Pasta with bacon and cream

I consider pasta with bacon and cream to be one of the best options for a quick dinner. It is prepared quickly and easily. The only recommendation here is to choose not very fatty bacon, so that the pasta doesn't become heavy. And no other nuances. The bacon will give flavor, and the cream will make the sauce smooth and tender. As a result, you will get the perfect pasta in just half an hour :)

So, put it in the refrigerator and wait. Then carefully run a knife along the sides of the form, remove the edges, take out our cake and enjoy. A classic cheesecake does not need additional decorations or toppings. However, you can serve it with fresh berries or berry sauce. If you are not satisfied with its appearance, whip heavy cream with powdered sugar and spread it on the cake. I went further and covered it with chocolate glaze and decorated it with a variety of candies - American marshmallows, pieces of domestic chocolate, and crumbled cookies. But that's only because my spoiled family got tired of the classic cheesecake and wanted something more elaborate. I strongly recommend trying the cheesecake in its original form first, without any decorations, to fully appreciate its delicate, creamy taste and airy texture. Enjoy your meal!

Prepare the necessary ingredients for the pasta with bacon and cream. Choose the least fatty bacon, as the cream will provide the richness in this dish. The cream should have a fat content of at least 20%. Otherwise, you won't achieve a delicious creamy sauce. Take the cream out of the refrigerator in advance so that they reach room temperature and do not curdle when heated. You can choose any type of pasta that you prefer.

Cook the pasta in salted water, following the instructions on the package. To speed up the process, you can boil water in a kettle. Keep an eye on the cooking time of the pasta to avoid overcooking. Al dente (with a slight resistance when chewing) pasta is more flavorful and maintains its texture.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until translucent. Tip: If you like mushrooms, add them together with the onion and garlic. Mushrooms go well with bacon and cream. They will enhance the texture and enrich the flavor. Chanterelles or button mushrooms work particularly well, but they are not mandatory ingredients in the recipe.

Add cream to the fried mixture. Allow the cream to warm up, but do not let it boil. It is important that the cream does not curdle, so you need to adjust the temperature and constantly stir. Tip: Before adding the cream, you can simmer the onions and bacon in dry white wine. This will add aroma and sophistication to your sauce.

Season the mixture with black pepper, and be careful with salt. Since bacon can be quite salty, I often don't add any salt at all. Taste it and decide if it needs salt. Mix everything together and simmer for about 1 minute. If you like it spicy, add some chopped fresh chili or cayenne pepper.

Drain the cooked pasta and add it to the bacon and cream. If the pasta retains some water, it's actually good because it will absorb the sauce better in that state.

Simmer the pasta with bacon and cream for about 5 minutes, until it is fully coated in the sauce. This pasta is a great foundation for seasoning experiments. Try adding some dried oregano, basil, thyme, or other favorite spices to give the dish even more aroma and flavor.
