Creamy Pasta with Bacon

My son loves bacon, so this side is a hit with him. Sometimes I even add chicken to make it a main dish.—Kim Uhrich, Cabot, Arkansas

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated linguine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 8 cooked bacon strips, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • In a small bowl, whisk flour and cream until smooth; stir into the pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into eggs; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
  • Drain linguine; add to the pan. Stir in bacon and cheese; heat through.

Test Kitchen Tip
  • Save some of the water you cook the pasta in and add it to the finished pasta if you like your sauce a little looser.

      I can not believe you lot use this main course dish as a 'side'. How much do you eat for a meal each evening? WOW. I followed the recipe to a t. No scrambling of eggs, no 1in of pasta, NOT noodles they are something completely different and a whole different texture. Brilliant recipe and so very easy and so well flavoured.

      I wish I had read the reviews before I tried to cook this....basically I made horrible tasting goop that looks like scrambled egg...best I could do was salvage the bacon and make myself a sandwich....

      This is absolutely DISGUSTING. I have no idea who created this recipe, but it is awful. The "sauce" is clumpy. I made it twice hoping that I had messed up the first time, but no. It is flavorless and does not even resemble an alfredo. I wasted an entire box of pasta, 3 cups of cream, a package of chicken, and 2 entire onions. To top it off, I spent 2 hours trying to cook dinner, and ended up having to order take-out. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

      I guess I have to second some of the other reviews on here. The flavor wasn't that bad, but it wasn't creamy at all. It ended up being thick and sticking to the noodles. I thought maybe I did something wrong but it seems others had a similar problem.

      This was absolutely disgusting. There was no flavor at all. I spit out my second bite. We had to order Chinese. Very disappointing

      I made the dish by following the recipe. I was disappointed in it. The dish was bland. There was not the bacon flavor that I expected. There was no flavor that stood out. I will not make this again.

      I made the sauce with milk, instead of cream, and I omitted the eggs. It was creamy and delightfully delicious.
