Linguini with Bacon & Chicken Livers

Chicken Livers with Pasta

Liver with Bacon & Onions is a classic. This has chicken livers and linguini – simple main course if you love liver.


  • 10oz (300gr) chicken livers, cut in half
  • 3oz (90gr) smoked bacon, 3 – 4 slices, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1015 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 4oz (125gr) linguini


  • Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  • In large nonstick skillet heat 1 tbs olive oil over medium heat. 
  • Add onions and sauté 5 minutes. 
  • Add bacon and sauté until crisp. 
  • Add remaining 1 tbs oil if needed (my bacon is very lean so I need it).
  • Add sage and livers to pan and sauté 5 – 8 minutes. 
  • Cover pan and turn heat to low and let ‘rest’ 5 minutes more.  
  • Add pasta, toss to combine and serve.


If you don’t have fresh sage substitute 1 tbs dried sage or 2 tbs fresh parsley.
The ‘sauce’ is the olive oil and bacon fat – there should be 2 – 3 tbs. Either drain the bacon or add oil as needed
