DIRECTIONS

  • To Make Asiago Basil Cream Sauce: Bring heavy cream, all seasonings, garlic, basil and chicken base to a low simmer in a 2 quart saucepan. Let it simmer for 10 minutes to develop flavors.
  • Carefully add the shredded cheese. Stir constantly to avoid breaking the sauce. You must not boil the sauce at any time or it will separate.
  • Cover the sauce and set it aside from the heat until you are ready to add it to the pasta.
  • To Finish the Pasta: In a large saute pan, over medium high heat, add bacon and stir occasionally.
  • Once bacon is about 3/4 cooked, season with salt, white pepper and granulated garlic add mushrooms and cook them thoroughly. Note: If there's excessive rendered bacon grease, remove some.
  • Add pasta to the saute pan and stir well.
  • Next, add the sauce and bring to a simmer for approximately ten minutes.
  • Remove pasta from the heat and place it on a serving dish. Garnish with basil and Asiago cheese.
