Possibly one of the best you’ll ever taste

  • 375g packet of pasta of your choice
  • 600ml thickened cream
  • 3 bacon rashers, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 12 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dried or fresh/chopped basil
  • Olive oil
  • Ground black pepper
  • Grated or shaved Parmesan cheese to serve
  • Place a large pot of water on the stove to boil and add a pinch of salt. When boiling, add the pasta and cook to your liking while you make the sauce.
  • In a large, deep frying pan, lightly fry the bacon in a little olive oil until crisp. Remove from the pan.
  • Cook the garlic and mushrooms until softened, then add the bacon back to the pan. Lower the heat to medium.
  • Stir in the cream and boil gently until the mixture is reduced by about half. It will be thick and creamy.
  • Turn the heat down to low, then stir in the basil and some ground pepper
    to taste.
  • Drain the cooked pasta and add it to the sauce in the pan, stirring in gently over low heat.
  • Serve with Parmesan cheese over the top and some garlic bread.
