Penne Alfredo with Bacon and Sun Dried Tomato

A delicious twist on the classic Alfredo. Penne Alfredo with Bacon and Sun Dried Tomato will change your ‘go to’ quick dinner forever!

Sometimes your belly just calls for the simple things in life. The simply gorgeously, creamy and flavoursome things that is. Pasta alfredo is one of those dishes that you won’t see being made the same way twice; an ambassador of variation if you will. For me? I like a Penne with some very ‘non classic’ additions. Italians, forgive me.

Penne Alfredo with Bacon and Sun Dried Tomato

Ingredients
  • 10.5oz / 300g Penne Pasta
  • 1 1/4 cups / 300ml Heavy/Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter

  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • Handful of Fresh Basil, chopped (save some to sprinkle on top)

Method



  1. Pop your pasta in a pot of boiling water and cook until al dente. Retain a cup of starchy pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, fry your bacon over medium heat until it begins to crisp. Drain excess fat/oil if there's too much, then add your garlic & sun dried tomatoes and fry for a minute or so longer. Add your Butter and stir until melted.
  3. Stir in your cream and allow to simmer on a low/medium heat. When it just starts to thicken add in your parmesan, basil and seasoning to taste.
