30 minutes or less: Pasta Bascaiola

Just what we need on a Monday right?  Domestic Monday-itis sufferers will love this recipe - it's actually my Mums - I might have fiddled with it - but this is how I remember it and my kids love it.  It takes about 30 minutes to prepare and is a great lifesaver for those busy days.

1tb olive oil

2 rashers bacon sliced/diced
1 onion, finely diced
1/4 tsp black pepper
10-12 medium mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic
1 cup dry white wine
3/4 cup cream (you could use evaporated milk, but it will need thickening with 1/2 tsp cornflour)
1/4 cup finely grated parmesan (I prefer Reggiano)
Pasta of choice (Ravioli, fettucine, spiralli etc.) - about 5 cups cooked.

Put your water on to boil  to cook your pasta, if you have none leftover.
In a deep frypan, heat oil and add bacon, onion, garlic and pepper.  Saute until soft.

Add wine, then mushrooms, fry again, until soft

Add cream/evaporated milk mixed with cornflour, wait to thicken, then turn the heat down or off.

Add pasta and parmesan, sprinkle with parsley and combine well.  serve!
