Linguine with bacon and white sauce


I can’t miss this Presto Pasta Nights edition as it will be Katie of Thyme for Cooking (one of my favorite blogs) who will be hosting it this week.

I’ve had in the backburner for quite some time. I prefer red sauce than white sauce and that is what I usually cook at home. But it was my Mom’s birthday then and she requested for white pasta. So this was what I served for her birthday then (among other things and a gift from Beautifeel).

Linguine with Bacon and White Sauce

250 grams linguine pasta
200 g bacon
5 cloves garlic
1 medium sized onion
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell prepper
1 tbsp mix of dried herbs (basil, rosemary, sage)
1 pack of all-purpose cream
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside the pasta. Reserve about half a cup of broth. Fry bacon until almost crisp. Remove from pan, chop coarsely and set aside. Chop garlic, onion and bell peppers coarsely. In a pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil then saute garlic and onions. Add the bell peppers and dried herbs. Stir well then add the cream. Simmer for a few minutes then add salt and pepper according to taste. Add the pasta and mix everything to coat the pasta. You may add some of the reserved broth if the mixture is to thick. Add the bacon then check again for salt and pepper taste and serve.

    So nice that you pleased your mom. I would have been pretty pleased myself. I, also, usually do not make white sauces… Not becauce I don’t like them but because my hips like them too much! ;-))
    Thanks for the kind words…
