This is a simple but wonderful pasta dish infused with Italian flavours. Serve with a crisp green salad, some garlic bread and a glass of wine!


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.
