    Serves: 2 

    • 300g farfalle (bow tie) pasta
    • 4 slices bacon, diced
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
    • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
    • 1/4 cup diced Roma tomatoes
    • 1 cooked chicken breast, thinly sliced
    • 1 pinch ground black pepper
    • 1 pinch garlic salt
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 2 tablespoons thickened cream
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/3 cup Alfredo sauce

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally until the pasta is cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
    2. Meanwhile cook the bacon in a frypan over medium heat until nearly crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove the bacon and wipe out the frypan with a paper towel.
    3. Melt the butter in the same frypan over medium heat. Return the bacon to the frypan and stir in the red onion, garlic, Roma tomatoes, chicken, black pepper, garlic salt and salt. Cook and stir until the bacon is crisp and onions are translucent. Stir in the cream and cheese and cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
    4. Stir in the Alfredo sauce and the cooked pasta. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before serving.

    Excellent made as written!! Restaraunt quality I agree. This went together quickly since I had done all my slicing and dicing before I started and was just dropping things in to the pan. I don't know about anyone else, but I am dreaming of how good shrimp would be in this and I also think I will add 3-4 freshly sliced mushrooms next time. Thanks HungryJohn!!  -  27 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious! I cooked the chicken in the bacon grease. The rest was exactly the same. This is soooo good. Much better than what I get at the "chain restaurant" where I get a dish very similar to this.  -  17 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good! I did find the recommended porportions of pasta and alfredo sauce to be quite off but it was an easy fix. Serving just the two of us, I halved the pasta and doubled the alfredo. I also used fresh garlic and sauted it with the onion in the butter, then proceeded as stated.  -  18 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
