Fettuccine Alfredo with Bacon


Being the Carb-Lover that I am, I love pasta, so I have tried my fair share of fettuccine alfredo recipes.  But this recipe is by far the most Amazing Fettuccine Alfredo I have ever tasted.  Mr 8 and the kids couldn’t get enough of it.  I chose to serve it with a seasoned, grilled chicken breast and a green salad, but it would be perfect served all by itself.

Fettuccine Alfredo with Bacon

4 Servings (1 Cup per Serve)


1 Packet Refrigerated Fresh Fettuccine

2 slices Bacon Rashers (or more if you really love your bacon)

2 Garlic Cloves, minced

1 Tbl Plain Flour

1 Cup Milk (Lite Milk works just fine)

2/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

1/2 tsp Salt

2 Tbl Fresh Parsley, chopped

1/2 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Cook the pasta according to package directions, omitting any added salt or fats.

Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 Cup of the cooking water.

While the pasta is cooking, cook the bacon in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat for approx. 4 minutes, or until crisp, stirring occasionally.

Remove bacon from the pan, reserving the drippings.

Add the garlic to the pan and saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Sprinkle flour over the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.

Gradually add the milk, still stirring and cook for 2 minutes or until the mixture becomes bubbly and slightly thick.

Reduce the heat to low and gradually add the cheese, stirring until the cheese melts.

Return cooked bacon to the pan.

Stir in the salt and reserved 1/4 cup of cooking water.

Add hot pasta to the pan and toss well to combine, ensuring the pasta is completely coated in the sauce.

Sprinkle with parsley and pepper and serve immediately.

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
