Pasta With Bacon, Mushrooms And Tomato

Cindy started a theme of pasta on Tuesday’s and I am going to keep to this theme as long as possible.  It started with a challenge to use only 5 ingredients. I think that the simpler a pasta dish is, the better it is as you get to taste the ingredients. This is the same for every meal, do not over complicate the plate. I just love this recipe for Pasta With Bacon, Mushrooms And Tomato.

  1. A good Tuesday choice. I’m not cooking tonight, as I have an event to attend. But I’ve bought some straight-to-wok noodles from Woolies so Alan can do a quick stir-fry for himself and Chelsea.
