One Pot Alfredo Pasta with Bacon and Peas

Lately, I’ve been all about ease and this One Pot Alfredo Pasta with Bacon and Peas is ALL about ease. It’s loaded with garlic, bacon, pasta, peas and finished off with a lazy creamy Alfredo that is just to die for.

Lazy summer days are in full effect and I have pressed the easy button a few times now and what I mean by that is that I like to skip on using too many dishes whenever possible. I am quite literally the messiest person in the kitchen. You can’t tell from my photos, but when I am cooking there’s all but noodles stuck up on the ceiling. I wish I was exaggerating, I really do. My mom tried to teach me the value of “cleaning as you go” since my early teenage years. She still tries to give me a quick lesson in this method every time I am in her kitchen, but alas it’s just not me. I am a messy woman in the kitchen, and that’s just a fact! BUT, i’ll tell ya what, some of my favorite creations come forth when there’s precisely 730 different dishes to do, twenty containers open on the counter, and my dogs are licking some sort of sauce off the lower cabinets. Why am I telling you all about my disorganized chaotic method of choice when it comes to cooking? Well, I’ve been seeing all these “one pot” dishes lately. The ones where you quite literally make every single lil thing in one pot and then you have dinner ready and there’s like 3 dishes and even less if you make everybody eat with their hands and use paper plates. This is a real treat for someone like me who just has such an aversion to doing dishes and loading the dishwasher. I truly refused to believe that a one pot meal like this would even work for the longest time. I got to thinking I should probably just test this theory myself for the sake of my own sanity.

So about this one pot pasta. I went with bacon because well bacon and I are the bestest of friends in the kitchen and I use it whenever I can. (See: Bacon Balsamic Turkey Burgers, BLT Pasta Salad, Bacon and Pepper Frittata, Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit Bake)  I went with peas because Pepper absolutely loves peas right now. I’m talking it’s almost the only thing she eats besides fruit and cheese at the moment so we almost always have 3-4 packages of frozen sweet peas in the freezer. Last but not least, I went with parmesan cheese to help aid the cheesy, creamy, delicious factor because parmesan cheese is just so dreamy, a bit salty, and has a nutty flavor that I just love. Not only is the pasta a big hit on busy nights when I don’t want to dirty any dishes. It’s a huge hit with my little miss Pepper.  She eats a whole heck of a lot of it and it makes my heart so happy to see her eat something that isn’t cut off of a block of mozzarella cheese. She still refuses any and all macaroni and cheese, but this pasta and her are golden so I will continue to make it for her every few days because it’s just her favorite right now and I really, really love her. Also, Eric and I just love it too! Also, I only have a few dishes to do after dinner and there aren’t any noodles or anything on the ceiling. It’s easy, dreamy, delicious, and that’s all I can really ask for these days.

Let’s get into the kitchen, shall we?

One Pot Pasta

First things first, mince up a few cloves of garlic real quick and set aside. You’ll need them real soon.

Grab some center cut bacon and cut into small pieces.

Place the bacon in a deep large skillet and cook until it gets nice and crispy. (You’ll need the proper fitting lid for this skillet. Just a heads up, If your house is anything like mine and your child digs in the cabinest for different pots, pans, and lids and chases the dogs with the pots and makes hats out of the lids. I’ve had to search for said proper fitting lids one too many times. I normally find them in places like the dog bed or under the couch.

When the bacon is crispy, add the minced garlic and cook just until fragrant. Literally about 25 seconds.

Drain the grease off.

Add in your noodles, water, broth, and salt & pepper.  Don’t mind my lil mix of whole wheat and white fiber shells. It’s just what I happened to have had on hand over here. Bring to a boil, stir, then cover. Simmer for about 12 minutes or until the noodles are cooked.

There we go. They should be cooked perfectly.

Pour the half and half and parm into the cooked pasta. Over high heat, bring pasta to a boil while stirring constantly.

Add peas and continue to stir until sauce thickens and peas are heated through. About 3-4 minutes.

And just so ya know, there’s one way to make it even more delicious. Cook up a few extra slices of bacon and crumble just a bit on top of each bowl.

It’s just so bright, colorful, and easy! This pasta comes together so quickly for me and after dinner, especially if I made everyone eat with their hands, I just have a handful of dishes to clean up which is one of the sweeter things in life. I love this meal so much. Since this is something I almost always have in the fridge lately. I’ll letcha know that I’ve also used it more as a side next to a delicious piece of grilled chicken or bulked up the protein by adding in a handful of already grilled or shredded chicken breast. I hope y’all enjoy. Let me know if ya make it!

With love from my kitchen to yours,

  1. This is one of my favorites! Super easy to make and heats up great for lunches. One quick question – the recipe says 5 servings, but the WW personal points link calculates off of 10 servings. I got about 6 servings out of my last batch so I think the website servings are more accurate 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    Omg I love this recipe and so do my kids! It tastes amazing and you get a good portion. Thank you Star for this amazing recipe that is now on our weekly rotation.

  3. 5 stars
    This was so simple and so delicious! I can’t believe it took me so long to try it. Another fabulous dish by Star!

  4. Do you drain the water after the noodles cook? Or does it become the sauce? Thanks!

    Made this tonight after stumbling across it while searching for WW friendly recipes. It was delicious! Even my husband gave it a big thumbs up and he’s not trying to lose weight.

    This is my hubby’s absolute favorite. He doesn’t believe that it’s lightened up at all #top2021

    This is one of those recipes that is so easy and delicious that makes your family think your a genius. An all-time family favorite for sure.

  8. 5 stars
    This was awesome! Or as my 20 year old said – Mom, this is bang-in!! Thanks for another great WW friendly recipe.

  9. This recipe was so tasty but I didn’t put the recipe into my WW app until after and it came to 15 points per serving! Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be making this again.
    I’m in Canada so used Maple Leaf Bacon, and 10 slices were 37 points. We don’t have half and half here so I used blended cream and that was 10 points. The Barilla shells were 22 points.

    1. Yeah sounds like the difference in ingredients in your case really did make a huge difference. You could use less bacon. I use center cut so it’s a lot less points and as for the blended cream. I’m not sure what that is.. we don’t have that in the US. You could use half 1% milk and half cream and that is basically what half and half is. Sorry it ended up being too many points for ya, at least it was good! Really stinks when you spend a bunch of points but it’s not tasty.

    2. My favorite Skinnyish dish recipe! When we are trying to be a little healthier, I follow the recipe exactly or even do fat free half and half. Other times, I use whatever cream-type we have in the fridge and add extra parmesan. So delish!

  10. 5 stars
    This was so yummy! I did use fat free half and half and less bacon, but everything else was the same. It turned out great.

  11. 5 stars
    This is fantastic! I added a little garlic salt in place of regular salt because I was lazy and used the jarred garlic instead of mincing the real deal but it turned out wonderful! It was so easy and delicious! I’ve now tried 5 of your recipes and I love them all! I don’t think I can choose a favorite. Thanks for giving us great food lightened up. I’ll definitely put this in the rotation and continue trying more of your recipes!

  12. This is hands down one of my favorites especially if your a bacon lover!!! @kiims_ww_kitchen

    SOOOOOOOOO good!!! We make this all the time and pair it with a salad, perfect dinner! Its become such a staple in our house and I have to double it bc my boys LOVE IT. Thanks for making an amazing recipe. I share this one ALL the time 🙂

    Made this tonight and our family of 6 loved it! Even my boys who hate peas ate them happily
    Love all your recipes, Star! Thanks so much for creating delicious food ❤️

  18. Delicious!!! When I put all my ingredients in my recipe builder I got 21pts for a serving. Used everything if said in recipe but can’t figure out why it was so different that what you had. I know for next time but was totally hoping for this 9pts instead.

    1. That’s quite a big difference sometimes points can be more or less by a point or two depending on different ingredients, but 11 points is almost impossible unless using very different ingredients. I’m wondering if you put the correct amount of servings in the official WW recipe builder (on their site or app). That’s the only way I can see it would change so much unless you were using regular bacon/heavy cream/more parmesan etc. I hope that helps.

  19. 5 stars
    This is comfort food at its finest. And one pot!!! Depending on the saltiness of bacon sometimes I use less. Make this NOW!

    Love this recipe! Don’t be afraid to use any shape pasta. I also like making it with pre-cubed prosciutto! This will definitely be a favorite once you make it!

    This dish was great!! I used turkey bacon because my daughter doesn’t like regular. It got a big thumbs up from her and hubby and is going in the regular rotation. I served it with grilled chicken so I wouldn’t eat the whole pan!! Keep up the yum!

  23. This sounds yummy! I was wondering if I could replace the half and half with 1% milk? I can’t get out to get half and half because of the quarantine and I’m trying to clean out my cupboards. I’ve got everything else. I though maybe adding a little more parmesan if I’m using 1% milk. Thanks.

    1. Hi Michelle! Milk does work jus fine, but it doesn’t get “As creamy” and takes a little bit more time for it to become a sauce. That being said, it’s still delicious when using skim or 1% milk. I hope you enjoy!

    This recipe is on my menu on a weekly basis! Soo good. But when I make it I end up with some goopey balls. Is this normal?

    1. Hey Amy! So happy you enjoy! I’m guessing it might be the parmesan not melting completely for some reason. Try reducing the heat a bit when stirring it all in together that might help.

    2. I have just started WW (for the umpteenth time) and I am so happy to have found you! I am really looking forward to trying all the recipes you have generously shared! Thank you!!!

    Made this last night after seeing you post a picture on Instagram. Absolutely delicious!!! Very flavorful!! I will be making this frequently.

    1. This is one of my favorite meals in the world! SO happy you enjoy it, Lori. Thanks so much for stopping by to let me know!

      1. Just made this and it was mostly great, but I let it simmer for a really long time and the pasta was still a little tough. Should I add a little more broth? I got the large pasta shells, maybe smaller shells?

  26. 5 stars
    Love the one pot!! Also love is recipe. It was delicious and a large amount for only 8 points. My kids love it too (which is a miracle )

    1. Whenever I have a mom ask me what to make that’s super kid friendly I ALWAYS say this one. It’s a total picky eater pleaser. Pepper licks the plate clean. I don’t know what’s so different about it that makes it such a kid favorite, but I’m so happy you and your kiddos enjoyed it too, Joy!

      1. 5 stars
        So delicious! It’s my favorite and my kids love it, too! That’s a win for our picky eaters. I sent leftovers in my daughter’s school lunch and got a note home from the teacher requesting the recipe! Delish! Thank you for making delicious, easy recipes that I can whip up quick and stay on track!

    1. No, I don’t drain the pasta. There’s not extra liquid. I use just enough for it to cook up with all the ingredients making it an awesome one pot meal. Enjoy!

  27. 5 stars
    Made this tonight and it was amazing! Thank you for sharing all your recipes, they never disappoint!

  28. Hi Star! Did you use regular half and half or fat free? I know different brands can give you different point values, so I’m trying to figure out where I went astray in my entering. Thanks! PS I’m super excited to try this tomorrow!

    1. Hi there Rebekah! I use regular half and half, usually the brand Land O’ Lakes, but I’ve seen others use Fat Free Half & Half and it worked out for them as well. I hope you love it!

  29. Did you use regular half and half? Comes up as 9 points in my recipe builder so trying to figure out different ways to adjust.

  30. 5 stars
    I can’t belive this is only 350 cals per serving. It is SO good! This definitely tastes like a cheat meal, and the serving size is super satisfying. Thank you for such an awesome recipe! For anyone wondering about substituting the peas, I used broccoli because it’s what I had on hand and it was perfect. I just added the broccoli to the skillet a few minutes after I added the pasta so it had enough time to cook. Thanks Star! 🙂

        I have seen everyone making this so many times on Instagram and finally planned to give it a shot knowing we have loved every one of your recipes. Moms chicken and rice is a staple! I did sub with fat free half and half because that’s what I had on hand. Otherwise followed exactly. You did it again! Comforting and filing. Teenager loved it as well. Thank you for all you do

  31. This is the best.thing.ever.

    I made it last week for dinner and the whole family loved it – even my picky seven year old! I made it again last night as a side to my husband’s grilled chicken. (I also subbed the shells for Carba-Nada egg fettuccini noodles and it was delicious that way too!)

    Thanks for such a fantastic recipe! This is a forever keeper.

  33. Made this after seeing on your Instagram in the last week. So delicious! My husband doesn’t like peas, so I roasted some asparagus and replaced the peas with it. It was so good! Highly recommend. I may add even more veggies in the future. Thanks!

  37. I would love to try this but totally flummoxed with half and half? What am I missing?

    1. Are you in the United States? Half & Half is mixture of milk and heavy cream that is sold in bottles/cartons near the milk in grocery stores. I remember a few people asking about it before too and they were from England and Ireland and apparently this doesn’t exist there. I would stir equal parts of milk and cream to get the same result.

    2. I have a photography workshop next weekend with 7 people. Is it possible to prepare this the day before and what would be the best way to reheat a double batch or, is it best to prepare and serve the same day?

    Yum!! I made this tonight and the fam loved it! I actually used penne pasta and added shrimp. After the bacon was crisp I removed it from the pan and sauteed shrimp and garlic… then removed them from the pan to cook the pasta. Then just mixed everything together with the cream. Sooo yummy! Thanks.

  51. I made this tonight. SO delicious! I used the WW recipe builder and came up with 10 points per servings instead of 8. Did I calculate wrong? Thank you for this recipe!

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Sometimes certain brands of ingredients can effect the point value, but it’s possible you calculated wrong too.

    1. Hi Jackie! Sorry to just see this. The recipe calls for center cut bacon, but turkey bacon would work too.

      1. In my opinion, turkey bacon doesn’t perform well in this dish. I would opt for chicken.

    Delicious!!! I used ham instead of bacon (what I had in the house), and made 1 1/2 times of the sauce. I added some corn starch at the end to really thicken it up. And, making it in one pot was so easy! It was incredible!!! My husband absolutely loved it like I did. It’s a keeper for our household, and I’m going to share it with others!

  65. Love your recipes and your crock pot marinara gives me life! This dish looks SO delicious and I’d love to make this! One question – does the bacon get overly soft or mushy from leaving it in when you add the liquids? I expected to have to remove it from the pan before adding the liquid. My daughter has weird texture issues lol. Thanks!!

    1. I definitely don’t think it gets mushy, but it’s not super crispy the way it would be if you were just frying/baking it up. If she’s really turned off by texture maybe remove it from the pan just to be on the safe side. I’d hate for her not to enjoy it because of that! I hope y’all enjoy it when ya make it. Let me know how it goes!

    I made this recipe on Sunday night (LOVED it by the way) and today is my third day of having it for lunch. The recipe states that it makes five servings but I only got three out of it for some reason. I always make sure to measure out each of my servings so I’m not sure what I did wrong. Do you weight your pasta out to 8 oz? I only used 1 cup of uncooked pasta.

    1. I am so happy you enjoyed it!! I always weigh my pasta because dry pasta is just oddly shaped and measuring it in measuring cups can be difficult to do and off. (You get more bang for your buck when weighing) I went and grabbed shells and a measuring cup and weighed and measured 8 oz of it. It’s roughly 2 1/2 cups of dry pasta vs the 1 cup that you used. So there’s the answer, Sorry bout that!

    I made this recipe on Sunday night (LOVED it by the way) and today is my third day of having it for lunch. The recipe states that it makes five servings but I only got three out of it for some reason. I always make sure to measure out each of my servings so I’m not sure what I did wrong. Do you weight your pasta out to 8 oz? I only used 1 cup of uncooked pasta.

    1. I am so happy you enjoyed it!! I always weigh my pasta because dry pasta is just oddly shaped and measuring it in measuring cups can be difficult to do and off. (You get more bang for your buck when weighing) I went and grabbed shells and a measuring cup and weighed and measured 8 oz of it. It’s roughly 2 1/2 cups of dry pasta vs the 1 cup that you used. So there’s the answer, Sorry bout that!

    Okay, so I made this recipe on Sunday night and I LOVE it. But I did something wrong when making it and I’m not sure what… I am on day three of the recipe, so I should have two servings left, and I always measure out my servings, but for some reason I don’t have enough? I measured out 8 oz of pasta which in my mind was 1 cup of pasta. Did I need to use a scale and instead measure out 8 oz of pasta?

    1. I think it would still taste pretty delicious because of the creamy alfredo. You could even add a bit more parmesan! Did you try it that way?!

    I made this for my husband and he couldn’t get enough. It was so good and super easy to make. Can’t wait until I can make it again.
