Bacon & Mushroom Alfredo

It is actually very easy to homemake basic white creamy pasta sauce at home! Have you try it before? The taste is definitely way better than those off-shelves one. I am always happy to make this kind of creamy pasta for my family as they will polish up their plates within minutes and always ask for a second helping :D 

Browning the bacon and mushroom, removed from pan followed by making the base of the roux

Stirring in the cream, cheese and crisp bacon & mushroom, the rich and creamy white sauce is ready to toss into cooked pasta!

  • 1/4 cup chopped bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushroom

  • 200ml whipping cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 500gm lingunie or your choice of pasta
  • chopped parsley, for garnishing
