How to make it

  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, until crispy. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook pasta according to pasta directions. (If you're using fresh pasta, you can wait until after you've finished the sauce to cook the pasta). Transfer the bacon to a plate, and set aside. Drain the skillet, saving the bacon fat for another use.
  • Deglaze the pan with the chicken stock and milk, scraping up all the browned bits. Bring the liquid to a boil. Crumble the bacon.
  • Slowly add the Parmesan cheese, stirring until it melts.
  • Season the sauce with cracked black pepper and basil, add in half of the bacon bits and all of the chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Reduce the heat to low, and gradually add the Brie cheese, allowing each addition of cheese to melt completely before adding more. The sauce will be pretty thick.
  • The linguine should be cooked al dente by now; drain it well. Add the linguine to the sauce in the skillet and toss the pan lightly to coat the pasta with sauce.
  • To serve: Transfer a portion of the linguine onto a serving plate. Garnish with reserved crumbled bacon and chopped scallions. Optional: Put a poached or soft-boiled egg on top, and lightly pierce the yolk before garnishing with bacon and scallions.
