Description

Make quick and easy Creamy Edamame Bacon Bowtie Pasta in under 30 minutes. Cream cheese makes this sauce extra thick and tasty!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces Bowtie pasta
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or vegetable broth
  • 10 ounce frozen edamame, steamed in microwave
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of cayenne, optional

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling, salted water according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water then drain pasta.
  2. While pasta is cooking, cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Transfer to paper towel lined plate. Drain all but 2 TBSP of fat from the skillet.
  3. To the fat in the skillet add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. De-glaze the skillet with wine, scraping up the brown bit. Reduce heat and simmer until the wine has almost evaporated, 2 – 3 minutes.
  5. Stir in the cream cheese and reserved pasta water until cream cheese melts.
  6. Add pasta to cream cheese mixture. Stir to coat.
  7. Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces and add to pasta, along with the steamed edamame. Stir to coat and remove from heat.
  8. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.


Notes

Use Vegetable broth for non-alcoholic version.

Add a pinch of cayenne with the cream cheese for spice.

Salt before serving as needed. Sodium in bacon may not require use of additional salt.
