Presto Pasta Nights??? My first time to join a community of pasta and noodle lovers all over the world. I’m drooling over the recipes right now…
Linguine is my favorite pasta – either with white sauce or red sauce. Here’s my recipe for a creamy linguine with chunks of tomatoes. First, bacon is cooked till most of the oil has been removed. Not too crispy either as the smoked bacon flavor tends to get lost in the cooking. Prepare all the other ingredients. While preparing the sauce, you can start boiling water for pasta which you will cook al dente following package directions.
Put olive oil in pan then add onions and a dash of salt. Saute for 30 seconds then add the chopped garlic. Saute till onion and garlic are limp. Add oregano powder and the dried herbs. Saute for a while then add cream. Mix till cream starts to simmer. The cream should start to almost curdle then add choppped basil leaves and parsley. Mix well then add the linguine pasta. Add the choppped tomatoes,bacon, then salt and pepper to taste. Remove pan from fire and serve. To give it some kick, add a dash (or several depending on how hot you like it) of cayenne pepper before adding pasta Or serve with chili flakes.
