Recipe For All Pasta Lovers – Fresh Pasta With Bacon, Broccoli And Creamy Cheese Sauce

As you know, I just love the Italian cuisine. I like pizza, but I adore pasta. Pasta is a very versatile food. You can use it for breakfast, easy light lunch or nice satiating dinner. You can prepare one and the same dish using different ingredients (vegetables, sauces, meats) and you’ll get a new meal.

Not the least important for me, pasta can be prepared very quickly and tolerates almost anything you through in the dish with it.

Today I am presenting another pasta recipe, easy to make and extremely delicious. I am using an amazing creamy cheese sauce and garnish the pasta with another of my favourites – crispy bacon.

The result you would get would be a creamy, cheese flavour, bacon, crunchy broccoli mouth-watering fresh egg pasta. Fresh pasta is very delicate and flavourful. Tastes almost like the home-made pasta.

If you refer you can also make your own pasta for dinner as well. Click here to see my suggestions.

Fresh Pasta with Bacon, Broccoli and Creamy Cheese Sauce Fresh pasta with bacon, broccoly and creamy cheese sauce

Ingredients (serves 5-6):

  • 400gr fresh egg pasta

I usually use linguine or tagliatelle pasta.

  • 10 rashers smoked bacon

  • 200gr boiled broccoli

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup double cream

  • 150-200gr grated cheddar cheese

  • 2-3 garlic cloves, pressed

  • salt and pepper (optional)

  • 1-2tbsp olive oil

Preparation:

  1. Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper and arrange the bacon rashers, bake in the oven at 200°C for 20 minutes or until crispy

  2. Prepare the cheese sauce: in a pot heat the olive oil, add the garlic and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the milk and cream and heat. Add the cheese and keep on the hob until the cheese melts, stirring continuously

  3. Boil the pasta, it usually needs no more than 3-4 minutes in boiling water

  4. Assemble the dish: drain the pasta and add the cheese sauce and broccoli, mix well. Cut the bacon in pieces and arrange on top. Season with salt and pepper if using.

Yummy! Serve it with a your favourite white wine and enjoy!

    Fantastic recipe. The photo is very enticing. This seems like a pretty easy recipe to follow. Who could ever turn down bacon, broccoli, and cheese combo on anything?!
    Maybe add a salad and that should be more than enough to please everyone in my household.
    The white wine also sounds like a great idea. Thanks again.

      Hi Tugarcia. As I don’t usually drink, I am not very good at suggesting the drinks. But white wine with pasta is a pair my guests usually don’t refuse 🙂

      I agree with you, combination of bacon and cheese is divine, almost irresistible. How do you usually prepare pasta? Share your favourite recipes.

      Wish you all the best.
