Simple pasta recipe with cream and bacon
We said it before and we’ll say it again. Pasta is perfect for easy dinner ideas. You can get so much out of so little. Take this recipe for example: we use 8 ingredients and we get a delicious dinner recipe out of it in just 30 minutes. We’ve topped our served pasta bowls with chopped fresh parsley. We also top with some sort of fresh herb as it just adds the final look and flavor element.
Pasta dinner ideas
As mentioned earlier we used fresh fettuccine in this dish. Not only does it taste wonderful but it also just looks extra delicious compared to a regular spaghetti, for example. In this recipe we like to use spinach fettuccine (the green ones) but you can use any kind. You can also use spaghetti instead if you like. If you want something other than bacon you could use turkey bacon or even kale. As you can see it’s a very versatile dish. If you want more pasta recipes to try, we can recommend our creamy fajita pasta penne recipe, our pasta with salmon and pesto, or perhaps if you’re in a carbonara mood after this recipe you may want to try our traditional Italian spaghetti carbonara recipe.
Cheap meal prep with pasta
If you make one small variation to the recipe, this pasta is perfect for mealprepping. To be safe if you want to make extras that’ll be reheated later, what you need to adjust is to leave out the spinach when you cook your pasta. This is because spinach contain nitrates. Spinach and other veggies that are rich in nitrates become increasingly toxic when you reheat them (emphasis on reheat - it is totally fine to heat fresh spinach). Having left out the spinach, you can easily scale up all other ingredients and cook a large portion to be put in food containers, and you’ll have delicious food lasting you for days. It will stay good in the fridge for about half a week, but what’s beautiful is that you can freeze it if you don’t want to eat it all for the next few days. This makes it great if you’re looking for easy and fast meal prep ideas.
