From carbonara to cheesy bakes, nothing is more comforting than a hearty, creamy pasta. This Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pasta is one for all those days when nothing but a creamy pasta will do. It’s unapologetically indulgent, and loaded with all the essential food groups – cream, parmesan, chicken and BACON. Very little prep, on the table in 20 minutes!
First you will need 3 pieces of smoked bacon
After that, let’s have 2 chicken breast
Some spinach, to make the pasta more green.
Then pour cream into it and mix
Put pasta into it and just mix it with cream and others
Put some cheese to make the pasta more creamy
Tadaa, now you can taste this creamiest pasta! Look so delicious
Notes: 1. Just before you drain the pasta, scoop out a mugful of the pasta cooking water. This will be used for the sauce – the starch in the water reacts with the oil in the cream / butter and thickens the sauce.
2. Fresh grated parmesan is finer than store bought so it melts in the sauce. If you use store bought, ensure you use a finely grated one otherwise it won’t melt properly so the sauce won’t be silky smooth (flavour will still be delish though!)
3. You could skip the butter and use the bacon fat instead. But it will taste much more bacony, bordering on greasy rather than buttery creamy sauce (depending on how fatty the bacon is), and the colour will be light brown instead of white.
Nutrition is per serving. This takes into account 1 1/2 tbsp of fat that is discarded after cooking the bacon. 271 calories of the total 946 calories is attributable to the bacon. If you use ham instead of bacon (really yum!), it reduces to 790 calories per serving.
