Bacon Fettucini: Delicious: Yes; Healthy: I plead the 5th

Last Wednesday evening I was eager to cook but was coming up short on inspiration. Upon looking in the fridge, I saw cream and Parmesan. Aha! I then found bacon and my culinary visions began to flow.

I started with a roux; added cream to make a bechamel sauce; added cheese to make mornay sauce; then added bacon to make a heart attack sauce.

Bacon Fettucini

3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 Pints heavy cream
3/4 Cup Parmesan
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon white pepper
1 Package (16 slices) bacon
1 Pound fettucini

Boil fettucini in salted water. Cook bacon in oven on foiled cookie sheet-375 degrees for 20 minutes. In a separate ban, melt butter, add flour, add cream 1 cup at a time, whisk vigorously, add 1 tablespoon Parmesan at a time until melted, add chopped bacon, salt & white pepper to taste. Sprinkle with fresh parsley. Enjoy!

This dish received some very good reviews. I haven't heard yet about any heart problems.

Happy Eating


  1. If you are going to coat the insides of your arteries, do it with this... soooooo good!

  2. Fettucini is one of my favorites and I love bacon so I will be making this soon.
