The most decadent and creamy pasta made with brie, basil and bacon!
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and the cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water before draining it, then drain the pasta and set it aside.
Place the bacon in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat and cook the bacon on both sides until brown and crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside to cool on a paper towel lined plate. Keep the grease in the skillet.
Once the bacon is cool, break it into bite sized pieces and set it aside.
Add the thinly sliced onion into the cast iron skillet with the bacon grease and saute over medium high heat until the onions are caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and toss for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
Add the cubed brie into the cast iron skillet along with the reserved pasta water. Stir constantly until the cheese is melted and then add the cooked pasta to the mixture and toss to combine. Add the basil and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
