This recipe was on the back of pkg Fresh Ravioli that I purchased from Sam's Club.

The pasta was green in honor of St Patrick's Day & some were yellow or gold to symbolize the pot of gold. The flavor of this dish was very good. But the sauce was not as thick as I would have liked for it to be. Next time I think I will add some cream cheese or add a thickening agent to thicken it more. But the flavor was really good.
Should you make this you may want to keep that in mind about adding a thickening agent. So I am posting this recipe with caution about the sauce not being thick enough for me.

How to Make IRISH BEER & BACON ALFREDO SAUCE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Please note this is a double recipe. Original recipe was for half of package, but I made the entire package. This is the package of pasta I used for the recipe.
  • 2Cut bacon into 1/2 inch pieces and saute over medium high heat until fully cooked, remove from skillet, place on paper towel to drain. Carefully discard the bacon fat. These are the ingredients used in recipe.
    NOTE: SINCE I DIDN'T NEED THE BACON FAT IN THE RECIPE, I CHOSE INSTEAD TO COOK MY BACON IN THE MICROWAVE FOR LESS MESS & BROKE IT UP INTO SMALL PIECES.
  • 3POUR THE BEER INTO A LARGE SAUCE PAN AND COOK IT FOR 4 MINUTES.
  • 4Now add the heavy cream & cook for about 5 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken. IMPORTANT- Please keep pan to a LOW simmer, or the cream will coagulate (separate).
  • 5Once sauce is thickened add the butter.
  • 6Now add the cheese and parsley & stir until the butter melts. Remove from heat& add the chopped/cooked bacon.
  • 7Cook pasta in hot boiling water for 4 minutes and drain.
  • 8Spoon sauce over pasta, serve and enjoy.
