Creamy 'Meat Free Bacon' Pasta

20 Minute Creamy 'Meat Free Bacon' Pasta. Using 'facon' or other meat free alternatives this creamy pasta dish is delish!

Serves: 4 Time: 20 minutes



  • 400g Pasta of Your Choice (I chose Linguine)

  • 8 Slices of 'Meat Free Vegan Smoked Bacon Rashers'

  • 1 Red Onion, thinly sliced

  • Big Pack of Tenderstem Broccoli, end trimmed

  • Handful Parsley, chopped

  • 250mls Chicken Stock, I like the Knorr Stock Pots

  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced

  • 300g Creme Fraiche


  1. Boil a large pot of water over medium-high heat, once boiling throw in your pasta and cook until al dente (fully cooked but still a little firm), about 10 minutes depending on the pasta you chose (check the pack instructions). Drain the pasta (reserving a little of the pasta water for later), drizzle over a little olive oil to keep it from sticking and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and throw in the 'bacon' slices and cook for 2-3 minutes until a little crispy, then remove from the pan.

  3. Next, using the same pan throw in garlic, onion slices, broccoli and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add a splash of water and put a lid on and cook for a further 2-3 minutes so the broccoli cooks.

  4. Once done, pour in the chicken stock, mix well, then pour in the creme fraiche and 'bacon' and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes.

  5. Next we are adding back in the cooked pasta and stirring until fully combined. If you think it needs it, you can add in a little of the reserved pasta water here.

  6. Once done, and the pasta is warmed through, sprinkle over the fresh parsley. OMG! Yummy!
