Dutch Oven - Baked Farfalle Alfredo


Everybody loves a good Alfredo. This baked version uses Farfalle pasta with garlic and onions. Balancing these strong flavors is the hint of bacon sauteed with chicken breast. Farfalle means "Butterfly" in Italian. You won't have butterflies in your stomach with this low stress meal. The nice thing about baked pasta, is you don't have to dirty more than one Dutch oven!
