Bacon and Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Bacon and Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Chicken alfredo pasta is a staple that one sees at almost all pasta joints. If you walk along the pasta aisle in a supermarket, I can almost guarantee that you will find a bottle of ready-to-go alfredo sauce. In fact, many bottles of it, and different brands of it. It is THAT popular. I distinctively remember the day my mom bought a bottle of alfredo sauce and prepared pasta with it. I was young; my mom was working and didn’t have much time for meal preparations. Ready-made sauces were the best bet right? Wrong…. The sauce was floury, gloopy and tasted really bad. Now, I’m sure there are better tasting alfredo sauces out there now, but that experience was enough to stop me from ever, ever, ever buying a bottle of alfredo sauce. Why would I want to do it anyway when preparing alfredo sauce is so simple and quick?

Enter BACON. I’ve prepared chicken alfredo pasta before, but I’ve never added bacon to it. Apparently I’ve been missing out for a long time. Thankfully, I so happen to have some bacon left in the fridge and hence decided to add it in. I’m pretty sure I’ll never prepare chicken alfredo pasta without bacon again. After all, bacon pretty much makes all things taste better. Doesn’t it?

So there you go. Reasons why you should make your own alfredo pasta AND add bacon to it. This pasta made my little one and husband very happy. Why, the little one, who’s becoming a little picky with her food lately, wolfed down her pasta!
