     Creamy Mushroom & Bacon Pasta

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None

7 oz uncooked penne pasta
Olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 of a white onion, chopped
2 oz slab bacon, cut into strips
9 oz oyster mushrooms
1-2 tablespoons water
1/2 – 3/4 cup cream
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Cook the pasta as per package instructions. Make sure to salt your pasta water. Drain, saving a cupful of the pasta water, and set aside. While the pasta is cooking you can start with the sauce. Heat a skillet or wok on medium high heat. When hot, add a couple of swirls of olive oil. Add the garlic and onions to the hot oil and sauté until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the bacon to the pan and continue to sauté, stirring, until bacon strips are cook and some of the fat is rendered. Don’t let it get too toasty. Add the mushrooms to the pan and toss. Season with salt and pepper. Add a tablespoon of water and cook until the mushrooms wilt and soften. If the mixture gets too dry add another spoonful of water.
When the mushrooms are soft add the 1/2 cup of the cream and stir. Keep stirring to get all the bits – let the cream infuse with the caramelized flavors that have accumulated in the pan. If the sauce looks to dry, add the rest of the cream. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add the cooked pasta noodles into the pan a little at a time, tossing as you do. Once the ratio of noodles to sauce is to your preference take the pan off the heat. You may not use all the noodles. If the sauce gets to claggy add a bit of the pasta water to loosen. Serve immediately with some freshly grated Parmesan on the side. Serves two.
