Instructions for Creamy Pasta with Asparagus & Bacon
First, Prepare the Pasta:
a. Put a big saucepan of salted water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Cook the pasta until it reaches the desired firmness, following the directions on the package. Drain, then put to the side.
2. Prepare the Bacon to Eat:
a. Cook the chopped bacon in a large pan over medium-high heat until it reaches the desired level of crispiness. Take the bacon out of the pan using a slotted spoon, and lay it on a dish lined with paper towels so that it may drain. Keep the bacon drippings in the pan they were cooked in.
3. Cook the Asparagus in a Sauté:
a. Place the pieces of asparagus in the same skillet that already has the bacon drippings. They should be cooked in a skillet over medium-high heat for approximately three to four minutes, or until they are soft but still have some crunch. Take the asparagus out of the skillet and put it to the side for later.
4. Sauté the Garlic:
a. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
5. Make the Cream Sauce:
a. Add the heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, chicken or vegetable broth, and butter to the skillet with the garlic. Stir well and cook for 3-4 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken.
6. Combine Ingredients:
a. Return the cooked pasta, bacon, and sautéed asparagus to the skillet with the cream sauce. Stir to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
7. Season and Serve:
a. Season the dish with salt and black pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
