If you love pasta and bacon, let me introduce you to your new favorite dish. This pasta isn’t healthy at all, but it’s not as bad for you as it could be. Really.

Garlic could possibly pass as a vegetable. Parmesan cheese and cream have calcium. And look… I sprinkled it with some green stuff, see?

It’s also super easy to make and uses minimal ingredients. Let the bacon shine.

Creamy Bacon Spaghetti

A decadent bacon spaghetti dish.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 4 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 5 strips bacon
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley chopped, to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • In a large pot of salted water, cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, chop bacon into small pieces (I use kitchen shears to make the job easier) and place into a frying pan. Cook on medium-medium high heat, stirring often, until crispy.
  • While the bacon is cooking, grate your cheese and chop the parsley.
  • When the bacon is crispy, remove the pan from the heat and mince the garlic into the frying pan. Stir. That way, the garlic will be cooked since the pan won't cool right away, but the garlic won't burn, and some garlic flavor will be infused into the bacon.
  • Once the spaghetti is al dente, drain it, and then return it to the pot it was cooked in. Instead of turning the heat off, reduce it to medium heat.
  • Return the pot to the stove and add in the parmesan and cream. Add the bacon to the pot, being careful to leave most of the bacon fat in the frying pan.
  • Mix the spaghetti with the cream, cheese, and bacon, and then serve immediately with a sprinkling of chopped parsley and salt and pepper if desired.

    Tried this in May 2020 and it quickly went into our family favorite rotation! Thanks for this tasty winner winner dinner!

    1. Natasha says:

      You’re very welcome, Kim!! šŸ™‚ Glad it’s a family fave!

    I don’t have a grater! Can I use a grated parmesan cheese in a jar? Same question for your chicken Caesar salad. Thank you!

    1. Natasha says:

      You can (when you say jar do you mean the powdered stuff? I’d probably avoid that if possible, but the pre-grated stuff from a grocery store will do), but I recommend buying a grater one day… it really is soo much better tasting when you grate it yourself. šŸ™‚

  3. Megan says:

    Could you use a can (or 2) of cream of bacon and add fresh bacon as well instead of the whipping cream? I have a few cans and not many ideas on how to use them! hahaha I need help with ideas!

    1. Natasha says:

      You mean cream of bacon soup? I think that should probably work. I admit I don’t really cook with “cream of” soups, but you could probably make something yummy out of it for sure!

      Excellent!! So happy you enjoyed it! šŸ™‚
