Fettuccine Alfredo with Bacon and Mushrooms

    20 minutes

    I make my alfredo sauce with the extra ingredient of cream as it creates a thicker, creamier sauce. I added smoked bacon, mushrooms and chives, but this would also be great with chicken and a different herb such as parsley.

    Serves: 2 

    • 200g fettuccine
    • 40g unsalted butter
    • 4 rashers smoked bacon, diced
    • 200g mushrooms, sliced
    • 80ml cream
    • 60g grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for garnish
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • handful of fresh chives or parsley, finely snipped or chopped, to garnish

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions then drain and set aside.
    2. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat then fry the bacon and mushrooms until the bacon has crisped and the mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cream and Parmesan cheese then season with salt and pepper.
    3. Toss the pasta with the sauce then garnish with snipped chives.

    Serving Suggestion

    This dish is best served with garlic bread. I use tear and share garlic bread but bake it with extra parmesan.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Very pleased with the results, added a clove of garlic for extra flavour but that's down to our taste buds. Definitely a new family favourite.  -  20 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Went for chicken instead of bacon and added some crushed garlic to the chicken and mushrooms while frying them off. Nice. (Nothing against bacon I just don't eat it)  -  29 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
