Bacon Fettuccine Alfredo

The Hubby and I love Food Network, it is really a battle some weekends to get off the sofa and do something because we get totally sucked in. Yesterday we had soccer games for both boys. Matthew’s first ever. We were so excited and right as we got to the field they were clearing the fields due to lightning, then the rain came and the game was canceled. We decided to run some errands and went to the grocery store. It’s been a while since Daddy has made home-made pasta. I know some people say it’s not worth it but I disagree, it is TOTALLY worth it. We made bacon fettuccine Alfredo, a version of this recipe from theNeeley’s.

Bacon Fettuccine Alfredo, using homemade pasta YUMMMM
The boys loved helping Daddy make the pasta and turning the handle to extrude the pasta

Matthew wouldn’t even wait for us to finish cooking the pasta before he was ready to eat. He said, “This is yummy Daddy this is the best pasta ever.”
I’ll give you the homemade pasta recipe another time but you can make it with store bought for now.
