Family-Friendly Cooking – Quick and Easy

If your kids are anything like mine, then pasta is always a winner, especially at this time of year.  My boys love nothing more than a big bowl of pasta.  They love mac n cheese, but this simple creamy bacon pasta sauce is really delicious for a little change.

Being wheat intolerant I often used to miss out on these meals as gluten-free pasta was not always that great.  However, over the past few years, standards have really improved and now as a family, we only eat gluten-free pasta.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ column_width_percent=”100″ shift_y=”0″ z_index=”0″ shape_dividers=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Put a large pan of salted water on to boil.

Once boiling add the pasta

Cut the bacon into thin strips, then dry-fry in a large frying pan over medium heat until crisp.

Add the cream, garlic and Parmesan and cook over low heat for 4 minutes.

Drain your pasta and add to the pan with the sauce.

Stir well and serve with garlic bread.

Top Tip: When draining, keep a little of the starchy pasta water in the pan.  Add to the sauce with the pasta, it helps to thicken the sauce.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]


This dish always gets a thumbs up from the boys and it is so nice to be able to eat a pasta dish as a family.  There is something really comforting about a big bowl of pasta.

What’s your kids favourite pasta sauce?
