Recipe for Creamy Bacon Pasta


    Creamy Bacon Pasta

    Serves 4 to 6.

    This is delicious and very tasty. I sometimes add fresh diced Roma tomatoes to it for a little variation.

    12 to 15 slices of bacon
    1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
    2 garlic cloves minced
    16 ounces cooked and drained penne pasta
    1 cup grated parmesan cheese
    2 cups heavy cream
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 cup sliced green onions

    Cook bacon until crisp, remove and drain on paper towels and crumble.

    Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in same skillet, add mushrooms and garlic and cook until tender. Stir in cooked pasta and the next three ingredients. Simmer over medium to low heat stirring often until sauce is thickened. Stir in bacon and green onions, mixing to incorporate.

    Serve hot.
