A very quick and delicious pasta dish with a light, creamy blend of Parmesan cheese and ground nutmeg. Serve with a tossed green salad and some garlic bread.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/2 pound linguine pasta
- 1 thick slice bacon
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for about 7 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain. Remove from pot, cover and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crispy. Break up into small pieces and set aside.
In the pasta pot, melt butter over medium-low heat and add cream; heat thoroughly, but do not allow to boil. Combine cooked pasta with butter/cream mixture. Add Parmesan cheese and bacon; toss well. Allow sauce to thicken for a few minutes; add ground white pepper and nutmeg. Serve immediately.
