Add something cheesy to your family's dinner! Enjoy this pasta and bacon recipe that is ready in 25 minutes – perfect if you love Italian cuisine.
oz uncooked fettuccine
slices bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
cup butter, cut into pieces
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz)
cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (2 oz)
teaspoon cracked black pepper
tablespoon chopped fresh basil
Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp; drain on paper towels. Discard drippings.
In same skillet, heat butter and half-and-half over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and mixture starts to bubble. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened; remove from heat. Stir in cheeses, pepper and bacon.
In large serving bowl, toss fettuccine with cheese sauce until well coated. Top with basil.
Try other cheese combinations, such as shredded Asiago and crumbled blue cheese, in place of the Parmesan and Gorgonzola.
A 9-oz package of refrigerated fettuccine can be substituted for the dried fettuccine.
