Creamy Bacon Pasta

Creamy Bacon Pasta is very tasty. I sometimes add fresh diced Roma tomatoes to it for a little variation.

Ingredients

  • 12 to 15 slices 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

Instructions

  1. Cook bacon until crisp, remove and drain on paper towels and crumble.
  2. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in same skillet, add mushrooms and garlic and cook until tender.
  3. Stir in cooked pasta and the next three ingredients. Simmer over medium to low heat stirring often until sauce is thickened.
  4. Stir in bacon and green onions, mixing to incorporate.
  5. Serve hot.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
