Dinner for Two: 5-ingredient Creamy Bacon Pasta

Creamy-Chicken-Bacon-Pasta-recipe | dessertfortwo.com

If your days are anything like mine, you can barely count to 5 at the end of it all.  Also, at 7pm, this monster comes out of my stomach and says ‘GIMME ALL THE CARBS.’  Do you have that monster?  No? Just me?

I’m always craving an easy, creamy pasta dish after Happy Hour.  Yes, we celebrate Happy Hour in my house almost daily, and you are all invited! (foreshadowing Thursday’s cocktail for two post…)

Since I’ve normally filled up on bourbon, I take it a easy on the heavy cream and use yogurt as the creamy base for this sauce instead.  But lacking flavor, this pasta is not.  Do you see that bacon?  Oh, heavens! Please buy the thick-cut bacon with peppered edges.  It’s the king of bacon.

When you walk in the door from work, put the water on to boil for the pasta.  By the time the pasta is al dente, you’ll have a creamy, easy dinner that no one can resist.  You don’t have to tell anyone it’s made with yogurt instead of cream!

I created this Creamy Bacon Pasta recipe for Food Fanatic, but as always, I’ve embedded the recipe below to make it easy for y’all.

    Is it weird that I want to plunk myself down on a chair and watch you cook in the kitchen, like a really creepy creeperton? This pasta looks amaaazing! It’s been ages since I’ve had peppered bacon (<- what a treat and a half!!) and I want it all up in my creamy pasta. <3

    I just wanted to tell you, I really LIKE your blog. Seems like all your commenters (followers) are 20 – 30 somethings? Well I am considerably older, but I love your recipes, because I find it hard to cook for two after years of cooking for four (all male except me, which translates into cooking for 6 to 8). Can’t wait to try this pasta dish. Keep up the good work.

      Thanks so much, Kim! It’s so nice to hear from you. I love having readers of all ages. I actually have quite the following at a certain nursing home in Florida. They bake my mini desserts and trade the other serving. It makes me so happy! :)

      happy baking~

    Hi Christina, I made this tonight for myself and Sarah and it turned out great. I used regular cream as I had this in the fridge and I used one of my BBQ rubs for the spice. Went down well. I really like the use of rotisserie chicken as I am always using left over chicken from spatchcock chicken that I have done on the smoker the night before in pasta the next day. Thanks for sharing this with us.
