Amazing simple fettuccine dinner. Fettuccine pasta sauteed in a delicious bourbon bacon sweet and savory sauce.
This is such a simple and scrumptious pasta dish that will make your tummy and your taste buds very, very happy!
…I have people to vouch for that!
My bestest friend in a world lives about 40 minutes away, yet we see each other so rare that the last time she comes to my house like once a year. (I exaggerate for effect.) Last time she came over, I had to make her something scrumpcious. She is a scotch girl all the way and I just had to make her this bourbon bacon sauce with pasta for her. It turned out great and everyone was happy. That’s the best kind of dinner, when everyone is satisfied and happy.
