“This is our family's take on a dish my husband saw on TV (I believe the original used pancetta and some hard-to-find ingredients). It's super tasty and quick. Always a big hit at my house and we rarely have leftovers.” - by Bookwyrm
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
- Fry diced bacon in a large skillet until browned, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon into a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in skillet. Cook and stir leek and cremini mushrooms in the hot bacon drippings until mushrooms are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Return bacon to skillet and stir in bow-tie pasta. Gently mix in sour cream and season with black pepper and parsley. Top with Parmesan cheese to serve.

"Great recipe! I was able to use only one pot. We used Rotelle because my 7 year old son picked the pasta and thought it looked cooler, Apple smoked bacon, more leek than the recipe suggests because th..." See moree one I had was huge, baby bellas and light sour cream. The cook time is not 20 minutes if you read the directions and it could take longer depending on your bacon. The parsley was good, but I might try basil or a mix of fresh herbs next time."
"Really wonderful taste! The addition of the sourcream was a major plus.. and surprise! My kids gobbled it up! I left out the mushrooms (which would have made it much richer) only because I have a few ..." See morein my house who turn their noses up at them.. something for more of an adult palette! Thank you for the recipe!"
