Some days only pasta will do, creamy mushroom pasta with bacon and onion specifically. Just thinking of it makes me want to run to the kitchen!
I used small amount of bacon for this creamy mushroom pasta with bacon, and let the mushrooms shine. You can also add some dried mushrooms and deepen the flavour. In that case use the water dried mushrooms were soaking in as part of the stock.
For pasta for this creamy pasta with mushrooms or just creamy mushroom pasta, I like to use thin spaghetti. Even though sauce is heavy it is still delicate in a way so, thin spaghetti are a good match.
Just make sure to cut mushrooms for this creamy pasta with mushrooms and bacon thinly. That way they blend better with the rest of the ingredients.
For this creamy mushroom pasta recipe, I used champignon mushrooms. For more flavour you can also use brown mushrooms.
For herbs you can use tarragon, parsley. Preferably fresh. I only had dried parsley but fresh would add more color so if you can, definitely use fresh parsley for this creamy pasta recipe.
This creamy mushroom pasta recipe easy comes together in around 30 minutes. It is best served warm. But if you have some left overs just reheat them with a splash of water and it will taste just as good! I also like to serve simpe tomato and cucumber salad on a side.
