Last Wednesday evening I was eager to cook but was coming up short on inspiration. Upon looking in the fridge, I saw cream and Parmesan. Aha! I then found bacon and my culinary visions began to flow.

I started with a roux; added cream to make a bechamel sauce; added cheese to make mornay sauce; then added bacon to make a heart attack sauce.

Bacon Fettucini

3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 Pints heavy cream
3/4 Cup Parmesan
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon white pepper
1 Package (16 slices) bacon
1 Pound fettucini

Boil fettucini in salted water. Cook bacon in oven on foiled cookie sheet-375 degrees for 20 minutes. In a separate ban, melt butter, add flour, add cream 1 cup at a time, whisk vigorously, add 1 tablespoon Parmesan at a time until melted, add chopped bacon, salt & white pepper to taste. Sprinkle with fresh parsley. Enjoy!

This dish received some very good reviews. I haven’t heard yet about any heart problems.

Happy Eating
