Recipe Request Fulfilled

Michelle left a comment yesterday asking for the recipe to my pasta with creamy bacon & mushroom sauce. Firstly, welcome Michelle! I took a quick peek at your blog and discovered that we have a lot of similar interests and joys. I don't know anyone else who even knows of the movie "Chocolat". I loved it!

So...that recipe, which you'll be pleased to know is fast and simple and cheap. Everything a Mum wants on a busy day!

Pasta with Creamy Bacon & Mushroom Sauce

Pasta, boiled to your family's taste ~ enough to feed your family and any shape you like. Dry or homemade...whatever suits you.
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 rashers bacon, diced or in thin strips...whatever takes your fancy and you have time for!
Mushrooms....I don't know, about 10? Thinly sliced so you get the most out of them
Parmesan cheese to serve

Saute the onion & garlic in about 20g of butter.
Add the bacon & mushrooms and saute until the bacon is cooked and the mushrooms have softened nicely.
Add the cream. For our family I use about 200ml. Allow that to come to the boil and thicken just a little bit. Then add the cooked pasta.
Mix well and serve with grated fresh parmesan cheese.

There you have it ~ very simple and very tasty. Miss Sunshine has Bible Study tonight so we need something that I can have chopped & ready to go before I take her to her transport (we share with another family that is close to us), and then cooks quickly once I get home.

Mmmmm, that's my idea of a great post - creamy pasta AND a reference to Johnny Depp!!!

I loved Chocolat too - I preferred the book, but the movie had Johnny Depp to make up for any shortcomings :)

What can I say Kez....I aim to please!

I hadn't heard of the book so I can't compare.
