This bacon & farfalle pasta recipe is the perfect weeknight dinner idea that brings together carbs and protein together on your plate in absolutely no-time. This recipe for bow tie pasta is so easy and quick that while you boil your pasta, your creamy gravy with bacon will be ready to be soaked up by the pasta. So, let's get the pot on the hob and get cooking one of the most delicious creamy pasta recipes with bacon.
Get a big pot of water with some salt on the hob and get it to a rolling boil. Cook the farfalle pasta or bow tie pasta as per the instructions on the packet.
Now, fry the bacon in a wide mouth frying pan. Use a knob of butter or a slight drizzle of oil. Soon you will find the bacon shrinking and releasing the fat and flavour
Once the bacon strips have turned brown and crispy, take them out of the pan. Remove some of the bacon fat from the pan, leaving behind just enough to get the sauce going.
In the same pan, add some finely chopped garlic and let it sizzle on low heat. We want it to release all its flavour into the fat, without burning them.
As they begin to turn golden, add the all-purpose flour and stir. If you wish to make it gluten-free then, add a teaspoon of cornflour instead. Soon you will see that the flour has become lump-free.
Now, pour the milk in and whisk vigorously. Make sure that there are no more lumps in the sauce.
Add freshly crushed pepper and mix.
Now, add the boiled pasta along with the pasta water, fresh cream and half of the fried bacon. Mix everything well.
Check for seasoning and add salt as needed.
Once the sauce gets a perfect consistency (as per your preference!), turn off the heat. Serve hot with a garnish of the remaining fried bacon.
