Fettuccine alfredo with bacon and mushrooms

About this recipe: I make my alfredo sauce with the extra ingredient of single 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

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

  1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions; drain and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat; 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; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss the pasta with the sauce; 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


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
