    Madilayn's Note:

    I saw this on Better Homes & Gardens TV show, then in a magazine. It's become a family favorite - so light and yet so tasty! The "sauce" freezes well and reheats easily.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 250 g bacon, pieces
    • 250 g sliced mushrooms
    • 2 red onions, cut in half & sliced
    • minced garlic (to taste)
    • thyme
    • spaghetti (or any of the long ribbon style pastas)
    • crumbly cheese (feta, ploughmans cheddar, anything that crumbles nicely)
    • butter


    1. 1
      In a large frypan, fry the bacon, then set aside.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in the same pan and then cook the onions until they have caramelised.
    3. 3
      Add the mushrooms, garlic and thyme/herbs and the bacon again and reduce the heat to low.
    4. 4
      Cook your pasta and then, using tongs or a spathetti spoon, add it to the pan with the bacon mixture in it. Do not drain as the liquid will help moisten the whole.

      This was a nice light tasty dinner my whole family enjoyed. I did use the sharp cheddar crumbles and added extra bacon and garlic. Thanks for the recipe!

      Simply delicious. I had been given a mushroom called Puff Ball, so I used it in this dish. I had never had this kind of mushroom and I found it got lost in this recipe. Too mild to stand up to the onion/bacon. I will use a portabella next time. Made for PAC Fall '07. :)

      SO GOOD! This made a wonderful light late night supper. Very easy with ingredients we had on hand and everyone loved it. I used Spinach Tagliatelle pasta and it was also nice and colorful! Thank you for posting. PAC-Fall07
