Creamy, savory, and full of umami—thanks to lots of Parmigiano-Reggiano, bacon, and garlic—this simple pantry pasta tastes like the Italian love-child of carbonara and cacio e pepe. Shallots and garlic are cooked in bacon fat, then simmered with heavy cream and starchy pasta water for a sauce that’s full of flavor. It’s the best meal to quickly put together on a weeknight since it comes together in under 30 minutes.
