Tonight Becca had her 2nd grade performance…They were all super adorable! But since this is a public blog and I don’t want to post pics of random kids I don’t even know, I can’t post a pic in good faith. Basically there are pics of kids all looking at their moms making cheesy faces. It was awesome. We ate Jimmy John’s at 5:15. My favorite sandwich shop and you can’t persuade me otherwise. I came home and made this for lunch. I shared with 3 of my school friends.
Pasta Alfredo with Chicken, Bacon, and Peas
1 package of your favorite pasta
1/2 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
6 sliced of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 container of cooked or frozen peas
1-2 pieces chicken (I used my leftovers from this recipe
1 container of Alfredo sauce or make your own- https://funfoodiefamily.com/2013/09/02/shrimp-and-broccoli-angel-hair-alfredo/
salt and pepper to taste
butter/olive oil add to your liking, a couple tablespoons
Heat a large skillet and cook your bacon. Once done, set aside and drain on a plate with paper towels to soak up oil.
Cook your pasta until 2 minutes less than the package.
Meanwhile, make your sauce. Add a tablespoon of butter to your bacon fat. Cook your chopped onion on med.-low heat until soft, about 5-6 minutes. Add your garlic and cook about 3 minutes more. Make the Alfredo sauce in this pan or add your jarred sauce. Add your cooked meat and peas until warm through. Season to your preference. Add your pasta with a bit of the cooking starchy water. Mix well and let flavors combine and pasta finish cooking, about 2 minutes.
I made this pretty late, so the lighting was terrible. It tasted delicious, and we all enjoyed it!
