Mushroom, Bacon and Fennel Pasta is one of my favourites recipes. The bacon, mushroom and pasta go so well together but add fennel and so amazing. Served as a main dish throughout the year. It is very popular young and old. Also, the cost of making it is very reasonable. I love to use fettuccine but fusilli, conchiglie, spaghetti are all as tasty.

  • Place a large pot of water on a high heat. Add a good pinch of salt and bring to the boil.
  • Place a frying pan over a medium high heat and add the streaky bacon to render the fat. Fry for about 5 minutes until the bacon is cooked but soft and the fat is in the pan.
  • Remove the bacon from the bacon and put to one side for now.
  • Add the fennel to the bacon fat together with the chopped onion and fry for about 15 minutes until soft.
  • Add the garlic and chill and cook for a further minute or so. You don’t want the garlic to burn.
  • Add the puree and fry for another five minutes.
  • Once the water has boiled, add the pasta and cook according to the packs instructions.
  • Finally add the mushrooms to the frying pan, stir and put the lid on until the mushrooms have softened. Should be 5 – 8 minutes.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, place a mug into the sink, sieve above it and drain the water. The starchy water is superb should the sauce need thinning.
  • Once drained, add the pasta to the sauce and stir well to cover the pasta.
  • Serve immediately with a sprinkling of cheese.
