Bacon and Tomato Pasta with Sauteed Mushrooms and Garlic


Oh, what a terribly delicious dish to sink your teeth into. Even though it is loaded with bacon, it’s perfectly healthy lol! Somehow, this dish has a deceptively delicious way of making you think you’re eating something light because it honestly doesn’t FEEL so heavy.  This dish was made so quickly I did not get a chance to take a picture of the step by step process but I will lay it out for you….


  • 6-8 strips of bacon diced ( if you’re not getting it from the butcher, i recommend BLACK LABEL brand bacon.)
  • 4-6 mushrooms sliced
  • 1 whole onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of flat leaf parsley
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • 1-2 whole tomatoes on the vine (diced)

Once you have your bacon chopped. Cook it in the skillet ( no longer than 5-7 minutes) and as you see the bacon browning nicely, add your mushrooms, onions and garlic and diced whole tomatoes. Let this cook down for 15-20 minutes. Add your parsley.


I like to serve mine over bow tie pasta. I feel like it holds the ingredients quite nicely!

And once your preferred pasta is cooked, serve it and enjoy! It is that simple!
