Recipe by Sandi From CA

My sweet mother-in-law made this on my first visit to the Netherlands and I fell in love... with both the dish and my husband's family. Since she had been making it for years, she hadn't paid attention to the measurements and so when I asked for the recipe, she estimated. So there I was with a recipe written in Dutch, which I don't yet speak, and with metric measurements. It immediately went into my husband's paws for translation and now I'm a happy girly!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the bacon on a mid-low heat until crisp but not burnt, then add the onion and garlic and saute until softened.
  2. Fry the mushrooms separately until most of the water is out of them.
  3. Heat the Gorgonzola gently in a pot with the sour cream. Add a little cream if desired, then add walnuts.
  4. Boil the tagliatelle. When the noodles are done, add 2/3 of all the "green stuff" (parsley, chives and scallions) to the sauce.
  5. In a large bowl, gently mix pasta with bacon, onion, garlic, mushrooms and sauce. Sprinkle remaining green stuff over pasta before serving.
