This is another amazing recipe that has been handed down between generations. I think it is really delicious and I enjoy making it for everyone.

Ingredients:
Water
Oil
Salt
Fettuccini (1 packet for 3 people)
Garlic
Onion
Bacon
Thickened cream
Pepper
Parsley
Chopped chives
Cheese

Equipment:
Pot
Saucepan
Wooden spoons
Strainer
Chopping knife
Chopping board

Method:
1 – Break up the fettuccini into the pot.
2 – Cover fettuccini with water.
3 – Add salt to ensure the pasta does not stick to itself.


4 – Turn on hotplate underneath pot to a low temperature.
5 – Chop up bacon, onion and garlic. Make sure the pieces are not too small.
6 – Pour a small amount of oil into the frypan.
7 – Turn on the hotplate underneath the frypan to a low temperature.
8 – Put the chopped bacon, onion and garlic into the frypan.


9 – Stir both the pasta and the ingredients in the frypan with wooden spoons.
10 – Once the chopped ingredients have started to cook and slightly change colour, pour in some of the cream. The amount will depend on the consistency in the frypan.
11 – Add the grated cheese. Keep adding the cheese and cream until it has thickened.


12 – Sprinkle in the pepper, parsley and chopped chives to taste.
13 – Strain the pasta.

Presentation:

Once the pasta has been drained, place portions onto plates or into bowls. Then spoon the cream mixture onto the pasta.

Note: To vary the presentation of the dish, use half the quantity of normal fettuccini and half of spinach fettuccini, which is green in colour.

Thanks Sara, I was at first worried about revealing secret family recipes, but then thought that they are that good that they need to be shared. I will have a look at the one you recommended for sure.
Cheers, Traci
