Recipe: Creamy Spinach, Mushroom and Bacon Pasta

BabySumoKids love for pasta is real.... even on vacation, they would request for pasta for their lunch and dinner. It's a great time for me to explore new pasta recipes too, with quality ingredients easily available.

I made this creamy spinach, mushroom and bacon pasta for them earlier this week and they loved it! Something you can easily whip up in under 20 minutes ;)

Creamy spinach, mushroom and bacon pasta
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 2-3 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves 4

350g spaghetti
150g bacon lardons or streaky bacon, diced
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, peeled and diced
1/2 pack (90g) baby spinach
1/2 pack (150g) white button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 tsp chicken stock granules
3-4 tbsp single cream
Freshly grated parmesan

1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta over medium high heat for 8 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. In a large frying pan or wok, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook for 4-5 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. Add the onion and saute for 2 minutes until softened. Then, add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes, then add the spinach and cook until they've wilted.

4. Add about 3-4 tbsp of pasta water (from Step 4) and season with the chicken stock granules. Then, add the pasta and toss well. Then, pour in the cream and toss again. Add more olive oil, if necessary.

5. Serve with generous amounts of Parmesan cheese and crispy bacon.
