Bacon and Pea Linguine in a White Wine and Soured Cream Sauce

This was most definitely a throw it in the pan kind of dish as I'm desperately trying to finish off odds and ends in the cupboards, fridge and freezer to make room for all the Christmas food that will be coming shortly.

As you all know Hubby is not a fan of creamy sauces so it was just my luck that he was out at darts tonight - giving me a great excuse to try this.

Ingredients: serves 2 and a toddler
4 rashers bacon, chopped
1 Onion sliced
1 Garlic clove, sliced
Splash of white wine
3 TBSP Soured Cream
Handful Parmesan, grated
Handful Basil, sliced
Toasted pine nuts to serve
350g Linguine, cooked according to packet

Step 1: Fry onion, bacon and garlic in a little oil
Step 2: Add wine, cream and cheese and simmer for a few minutes then add basil
Step 3:Toss in linguine and serve with toasted pine nuts scattered on top.


  1. Haha, don't be sorry about the long title. Long titles are the best!

    This looks so good! I wish I had some right now.

  2. Now that looks good - and I love all those ingredients!

  3. This looks like my kind of pasta! Looks like hubby missed a treat.

  4. Looks like a dish even a picky toddler would eat!

  5. Honestly, this is my idea of heaven. I love every thing about this pasta dish. Great recipe!

  6. ooh sounds yummy! my kinda pasta dish!

  7. I do something just like this but with smoked salmon in place of bacon.

    I like the idea of adding pinenuts I'll try that next time, looks good!

  8. Love the sound of the sauce, almost like a short cut carbonara sauce.

  9. Pasta is always so good!The peas add nice color too!

  10. What an interesting use of sour cream! this kind of dinner can sometime be very mild so I bet that extra tang was a perfect addition
