Creamy Bacon Mushroom Pasta

I made this last night. My own recipe...

Creamy Bacon Mushroom Pasta

Pasta (spaghetti or penne)

Onion, chopped

Garlic, minced

Black Pepper, ground

Oregano, ground

Parsley, chopped finely


Button Mushrooms, sliced






  • Cook pasta according to package directions or until al dente. Drain and toss with butter.
  • In a pan, cook bacon without oil until it turns into a crisp. Once crispy, crumble into flakes and set aside.
  • In the same pan, remove some of the melted bacon fat and leave just enough for sautéing the onion and garlic. Add mushrooms and a bit of butter.
  • In a pot, melt butter and add cream and some water. Stir in one direction and make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan by keeping the fire low.
  • Add cheese, salt, pepper, oregano and parsley. Stir.
  • Add sautéed mushrooms and a few bits of flaked bacon. Simmer for a few minutes then mix with the pasta.
  • Serve with cheese and garnish with bacon and parsley.
