Creamy Stove-Top Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

What could possibly be better than Alfredo-sauced pasta? Adding a little bacon and peas to the dish. Tip: Purchase ultra-pasteurized whipping cream. It will keep longer in the refrigerator than regular cream, allowing you to make this easy recipe often.

Creamy Stove-Top Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

Directions

  1. In a large deep skillet cook the 4 slices bacon until crisp. Stir in garlic; cook and stir for 30 seconds more. Stir in pasta, broth, the water, salt, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring once. Stir in peas, whipping cream, and Parmesan cheese. Cook and stir about 2 minutes more or until heated through. Serve immediately. If desired, top with crumbled bacon.

Smart Swap

You could use whole milk for the whipping cream in a pinch (but you'll miss out on some of the creamy goodness).

5 stars really delicious, really easy, but really salty! Leave out the 1/2 teas salt, you can add later if needed. I added more cream to tone it down, too. BUT so good this is on our permanent dinner rotation now, too!

Really good! The sauce wasn't as rich as most recipies. The bacon added flavor but I think it would also be good with panchetta or Italian sausage!

This was wonderful. I used chicken broth in place of the water and cooked the mixture for the full 15 minutes. I used whipping cream and doubled the Parmesan. When finished, it was creamy and tasted fantastic. Putting this into our dinner rotation. Thank you BHG.

I sprinkled with a little Parm instead of more bacon. Was a bit thinner sauce than expected, I'd maybe reduce liquid just a bit.

Oops, that was supposed to say "Not fantastic, but not bad!"

Nor fantastic, but bad. Faster and fewer dishes than traditional alfredo. I used half and half instead of cream, and homemade stock instead of canned chicken broth, which gave it some extra flavor and nutrition. The sauce was runny, so I added some cornstarch slurry and cooked a little longer to let it thicken up. I added extra pepper and some parsley before serving. I think it would be good with frozen spinach added with or instead of the peas. I'll keep this on hand for a quick week night meal.

Is the pasta supposed to be added when it's uncooked? Do not want to mess this recipe up!!

I followed the directions EXACTLY as stated and this turned out awful. This was not a creamy dish. It was very runny. Also, I believe 2 cloves of garlic is complete overkill. I ended up only using one clove and it was excessive - and I really like the taste of garlic! I had my husband read the directions to make sure I didn't do something wrong, but I followed along exactly.
