My favourite cheap ingredients:bacon,mushrooms and garlic. so so good!



  • Serves 6
  • 1 (500g) packet penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 175g (6 oz) smoked bacon, chopped
  • 1 (200g) punnet mushrooms, sliced*
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 750ml (1 1/4 pints) chicken stock
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • (optional)
  • 50g (2 oz) freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • *you can swap mushrooms for the same amount of chopped onion


1.Cook penne according to packet instructions; drain.

2.In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook bacon until browned. Stir in the garlic and cook for a few minutes, then add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring constantly, for a couple of minutes until the mushrooms begin to soften.

3.Pour in the chicken stock, and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add cooked penne to the pan, and stir until coated. Simmer uncovered until the sauce has reduced to just a few teaspoons in the bottom. Place generous servings onto plates, and top with parmesan cheese.
