Creamy Stove-Top Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

I made this easy dish for dinner tonight and it was delicious! One pan, minimal washing up…couldn’t be happier. We also have left overs for Poppy and I’s lunch tomorrow!


4 slices thick-sliced bacon, coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 ounces dried rotini, penne, or rigatoni pasta
1 14 1/2 ounce can chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)

In a large deep skillet cook the 4 slices bacon until crisp. Stir in garlic; cook and stir for 30 seconds more. Stir in pasta, broth, the water, salt, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring once. Stir in peas, whipping cream, and Parmesan cheese. Cook and stir about 2 minutes more or until heated through. Serve immediately. If desired, top with crumbled bacon.
