This creamy Pasta Carbonara is quite delicious and surprisingly easy to make. This is another one that my guys love to see on the menu!
3 cups penne pasta
1 package turkey bacon
1 cup half & half
1 stick butter
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2-3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/3-1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
¼ cup green onions, sliced (optional)
Additional grated parmesan for topping
Cook pasta according to package.
In a large skillet, add half & half, butter, parsley, garlic and salt. Cook over medium low heat until butter is melted. Be careful not to allow it to boil. Drain pasta. Add to cream mixture. Chop bacon. Stir in bacon and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle each serving with green onion, chopped basil and additional parmesan cheese, if desired.
