TK-Blog-bacon-parmesan-pasta-Finished12-550x366[1]
I got this recipe from Ree Drummond and she got it from Trish Boese….just sayin….
Ingredients:
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/4 teas. crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound Rigatoni or Penne Pasta
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/4 teas. freshly ground black pepper
In a skillet, fry the bacon.  Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.  When done, remove bacon, let cool and roughly chop.  Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done (accor. to package instructions).   Place cream and cream cheese in small saucepan.  Heat over low heat until cream cheese is melted, and whisk until smooth.  Remove from heat.  Add the parmesan cheese, eggs, and pepper and whisk until blended.  Drain pasta (reserving 1/2 cup of hot water and return to pot.  Immediately add the white sauce and toss to coat.  The hot pasta will cook the eggs.  Stir in the bacon, add some of the pasta water (if needed) to loosen the sauce.
I absolutely could eat this every day!
