As a child, my only encounter with pasta was the Chinese macaroni soup that my mom made. I didn’t even know that other forms of pasta existed until I started watching cooking shows in my teens. I would follow my mom to the grocery store and could not believe the assortment of pasta shapes available. I was truly amazed. Naturally, the first kind of pasta dish I cooked was spaghetti with ground beef and jarred pasta sauce. I think I’ve come a long way now.
Whenever I’m in need of an easy meal, I turn to pasta. This creamy bacon and mushroom penne is super easy to make and will have everyone just licking their plates! It is very flavorful and so indulgent. The only tedious part is slicing the mushrooms but you can also buy pre sliced mushrooms and cut down your prep time.
