EVERYTHING BAGEL PASTA INGREDIENTS

You will need:

  • 1 (16-ounce) box of linguini pasta, cooked
  • ½ cup of water reserved from the cooked pasta 
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup (1 small) yellow onion, diced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons Everything Bagel Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup grated pecorino romano cheese

Garnish

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Pasta: You can use any pasta you prefer, but using something of a similar size and shape to the linguine will give you a tasty dish with the creamy sauce. You can also substitute whole wheat pasta for regular pasta if that is what you like.

Chicken: This dish would be great with the addition of grilled boneless skinless chicken breast for added protein to your meal.

Cheese: If you do not like pecorino-romano cheese, grated parmesan cheese will be just as delicious. This would make it very similar to a fettuccine alfredo sauce.

Garnish: You can substitute chopped chives or green onions for the parsley. You can also add an extra ¼ cup of grated cheese for the garnish.

Cream Cheese: While plain cream cheese is perfect for this recipe, if you are feeling adventurous, you could try out different kinds of cream cheese mixed into the pasta. Whichever flavor you decide to use, try to get it in the block type of cream cheese, which makes measuring and mixing easier.

Seasoning: Don’t worry if you can’t find the seasoning at the store, you can now make your own seasoning with our Everything Bagel Seasoning recipe. If there is a certain ingredient that you don’t like in the original, you can modify the recipe to make your own custom blend.

HOW TO MAKE THIS EVERYTHING BAGEL PASTA RECIPE

STEP ONE: In a large pot, cook pasta with a pinch of salt in the water to al dente according to package instructions (9 to 11 minutes). When the pasta is done cooking, reserve ½ cup of the pasta water in a separate bowl to be used for later. Drain the remaining liquid. Set aside.

PRO TIP: Al dente is the ideal consistency for pasta. The pasta will be tender and will still have a slightly firm texture when you bite into it.

STEP TWO: While your pasta is cooking, in a large skillet on medium high heat, saute your butter, onions, everything bagel seasoning, salt, and pepper. Saute the onions for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are soft and translucent.

PRO TIP: Keep a close eye on the spices in the pan as you don’t want to burn them while sauteing the onion. Just make sure you stir frequently.

STEP THREE: Add the flour to the onions and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until you no longer see raw flour.

STEP FOUR: Whisk the reserved pasta water into the flour mixture, making sure you do not have any lumps remaining.

STEP FIVE: Add the block of cream cheese to the flour and onion mixture. Stir the cream cheese around so that it melts into the flour mixture and is smooth.

STEP SIX: Slowly add the milk to the cream cheese mixture. Allow this sauce to cook and thicken for 3 to 5 minutes, make sure to whisk constantly to avoid any lumps from forming.

PRO TIP: Make sure you are whisking constantly as you want to maintain the creamy consistency and not have any milk or cream cheese burn on the bottom of the pan.

STEP SEVEN: Add the grated pecorino-romano cheese to the sauce and stir to combine.

STEP EIGHT: Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss it to coat it entirely in the sauce.

STEP NINE: You can garnish the pasta with the additional everything bagel seasoning and chopped fresh parsley if desired.

HOW TO SERVE

Serve this everything but the bagel pasta recipe right away with a sprinkle of cheese and another dash of everything bagel seasoning. Cream sauces tend to taste the best right out of the pan, and this one is no exception. Add garlic bread and Caesar salad on the side for a complete meal.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: We do not recommend making this flavorful meal ahead of time or freezing it. This sauce is meant to be eaten immediately after making it. If you do end up with leftovers, they can be stored, in a covered container, in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days, but you may find the texture is not quite the same as when freshly made.  

This viral seasoning with its nice nutty crunch is having its moment in the spotlight, and we are taking full advantage of it. It mixes poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic flakes and onion flakes to take your bagels, and now your pasta, to the next level.

FAQ

What kind of pasta is best for this everything bagel seasoning pasta recipe?

You can use any kind of pasta you prefer. If you want to keep the long noodles, any type will work, from angel hair to spaghetti or fettuccine.

Why do I need to save the pasta water and not just use plain water later in the recipe?

When cooking the pasta, it leaves a good amount of starch in the water. The starch granules in that water, when combined with something like the fat in cream cheese, for instance, bond instantly, swell a little bit, and create a glossy sauce that coats the pasta nicely.

Can I make up my own spice mix for this recipe instead of the traditional Everything Bagel Spice?

The sky’s the limit with this everything bagel spice pasta recipe. If you don’t like the ingredients included in the bagel spice, you could add so many different spices and crunchy ingredients to your spice blend.
