“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!” - by ONYX78
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

"My son and I LOVED this recipe! The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that my husband found it lacking in flavor (his taste buds must be on vacation). I did add onion as previously suggested..." See more. Next time I do think I will add some diced chicken and replace some of the broth with white wine to add some more flavor. Thanks for the post."

Dumped all but ..." See morea Tbs of grease and fried mushrooms in pan for a minute. Added 1/4 cup of chicken stock and scraped up the bacon bits. Added broccoli* and garlic* and covered to steam veggies. Added very al dente pasta to pan and 1/2 cup more chicken stock. Reduced by half and finished w/ a dash of cream and some parmesan. Then I sprinkled the bacon on top and served with more parmesan. Soooo good."

After they began to get tender I added a bit of flour before I put the chicken broth in. I added the bacon back into it with the pasta and mixed in some Parmesan cheese. My hubby said next time add some asparagus I think that will be great! Thanks Onyx78 for sharing!"
