Creamy bacon and garlic pasta

This was a quick lunch I prepared for the kids and I - very basic but yummy at the same time.

This is the recipe (hello Mel, hope you are taking notes LOL!)

drizzle of olive oil

4-5 rashers of bacon, diced finely

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1/4 C white wine or chicken stock

150g light sour cream

1/4 C milk

2 tsp plain flour

2 Tb fresh grated parmesan cheese

sea salt

cracked black pepper

250g pasta (I used elbow macaroni)

Drizzle a bit of olive oil into a pan and add the diced bacon, stirring to avoid sticking, once it starts to brown, add minced garlic and stir until aromatic.

Deglaze with some wine or stock, allow liquid to reduce and add sour cream.

Stir flour into the 1/4C of milk, and add to the sauce (this is to thicken the sauce)

Simmer until thickened, add fresh parmesan, S&P, stir through cooked 250g of pasta, add extra parmesan and cracked black pepper to serve!

As an afterthought I thought you could probably add some grated zucchini, or spinach, mushrooms of course and maybe even some corn to the sauce for some extra colour and veg..Anyway..hope it turns out as well for you Mel as it did for me!

Tried this at home, it was really good, though we did not add the wine and little less garlic.

Thanks for the recipe :)
