Cheesy Garlic, Sausage, and Bacon Pasta

My husband absolutely loves it when a recipe contains more than just one meat.  And I love anything with a cream sauce.  So this recipe makes us both happy!  I got the idea from this recipe, but the whole carbonara process seemed too time consuming to try out with a fussy baby on my hip so I just added some flour and cream to the bacon and sausage drippings to make a normal cream sauce for the pasta and it was delicious!  But I'm sure actually making it as carbonara wold be wonderful as well so feel free to give yourself more time than I did and try it out.

  • 3 Tablespoons of flour
  • 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 pound of spaghetti - cooked
  • 1 lb of sliced smoked sausage
  • 1/2 pound of bacon - after cooked cut into pieces
  • 1- 2 teaspoon of minced garlic *depending on taste
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 extra cup of Italian blend cheeses* (can be the mixed bag style in stores)
Fry bacon and use drippings to brown sausage. Reduce heat and add garlic to simmer with sausage.  Add a few tablespoons of flour to create a roux and mix well.  Add cold cream and stir til the sauce thickens. Add Italian blend cheese.  Add bacon and pasta and combine.  Sprinkle Parmesan on top and serve.
