Lily Daily - Fettuccine Alfredo With Bacon - So easy to make and super delicious, all you need is this sauce, part of my All In A Bottle Series.  A must try!

I've been wanting to start a blog for such a long time and today, I'm so excited that I finally get to write my very first post!!  I am going to share my boys' ultimate go to food - Pasta With Alfredo Sauce and Bacon.  Coincidentally, about half a year ago, a young mom that I bumped into at the supermarket also asked me how to make this.  To top it off, the other day when one of my son's friend came over and tried it, he insisted that I give my recipe to his mom.  So I thought, what a great way to start off my blog - sharing our "secret" family recipe..... all in a bottle!   :  )

Pasta With Alfredo Sauce and Bacon

All you need are as follows:

Lily Daily - 2. Pasta, Bacon, Alfredo Sauce

First, bring a pot of water to a boil, add a couple of pinches of salt.

Lily Daily - 1. Boil Water

Measure pasta with fingers by making a circle the width of a quarter.  One quarter size is equivalent to 1 cup of cooked pasta (2 oz) or 2 servings.  You'll need 3 "quarters".

Lily Daily - 3. Pasta Measurement

Cook according to package instructions, usually about 8 minutes using medium heat.

Lily Daily - Cooking Pasta

Al dente!  Run cooked pasta under cold water, then drain, set aside.

(Optional for added taste:  place a couple of table spoons of butter onto the cooked pasta, combine.  Then add grated Parmesiano Regiano, combine again.  The butter acts as glue so the cheese will stick nicely to the pasta.)
