  • Pasta with bacon and mushrooms.

    I made this for supper tonight. I used homemade spinach noodles and crimini (SP?) mushrooms. EXCELLENT!!! I will be making it again. I didn't have to add any pasta broth at the end.

    Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms

    Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 15 Minutes Difficulty: Easy Servings: 4

    2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    3 slices Thin Bacon, Cut Into 1/2-inch Pieces
    3 cloves Garlic, Minced
    1 package (10 Ounce) White Button Mushrooms, Sliced Thin
    1 cup Low Sodium Chicken Broth (OR Dry White Wine)
    1 cup Half-and-half
    cups Heavy Whipping Cream
    3 whole Green Onions, White And Light Green Parts Sliced
    cups Flat-leaf Parsley, Minced
    cups Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
    Salt To Taste
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
    1 pound Thin Spaghetti Or Angel Hair Pasta
    Extra Parmesan, For Sprinkling

    Preparation Instructions

    Cook pasta according to package directions.

    In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add bacon pieces and cook until light brown but not crisp. Remove bacon from pan and set aside. Do not clean pan.

    Add mushrooms and garlic to pan. Toss/stir around and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes; increase heat to high if needed to help mushrooms begin to turn golden brown.

    Pour in chicken broth. Stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any bits. Cook over medium-high heat for several minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by half.

    Reduce heat and pour in half and half and cream. Stir and allow to bubble and thicken for a couple of minutes. Add sliced green onions parsley and bacon, then cook for one more minute. Finally, add Parmesan and stir, allowing cheese to melt and incorporate into the sauce. Turn off heat.

    Add cooked pasta to a large bowl. Add half the sauce from the pan. Toss with tongs.

    ***Add 1/2 cup hot pasta water at this point if the pasta mixture is too thick and gunky. Toss and add more water until it reaches the consistency you need.***

    Serve pasta in individual bowls, topping each helping with the rest of the sauce. Sprinkle with extra parsley and extra Parmesan.
