Holy Smoked Bacon and Mushroom Penne

Janet Paulin

"When I was in university, I created this flavorful penne pasta recipe using my favorite ingredients: smoked bacon, button mushrooms and garlic. It became a hit with my family, friends and even special guests at home. It's a wonderful recipe because it's easy, convenient and yummy to boot! Serve while hot with buttered crusty bread. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the penne pasta and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pot, and cook until pasta is almost tender, about 6 minutes. Drain.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until browned. Stir in the garlic and cook for a few minutes, then add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring constantly, for a couple of minutes until the mushrooms begin to soften.
  3. Pour in the chicken stock, and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add cooked pasta to the pan, and stir until coated. Simmer uncovered until the sauce has reduced to just a few teaspoons in the bottom. Place generous servings onto plates, and top with Parmesan cheese.

This was fanatastic. I was looking for a different pasta recipe to have for dinner and stumbled on this. I saw that Kez, a good friend made it and enjoyed it and decided I had to try it. I co...

I didn't measure anything, just cooked and added as it looked right to me. I added chopped fresh shallot with the garlic and some fresh, baby spinach at the end. Humble, simple, but extremely d...

did add celery, onions, chicken and garlic.. yummy!!

This was very tasty! I made it as-is, but would definitely follow some of the other readers comments next time. The reduction of the "sauce" (which wasn't a sauce, so don't be expecting that!)...

I think this could have turned out better if it wasn't all mixed together and simmered until the stock was reduced, the bacon and mushrooms lost their crispiness from being sauteed and the pasta...
