Comfort Food Pasta

I’ve debated over and over what to call this dish and the reason I’ve gone with ‘Comfort Food Pasta’ is because it really is just that. It won’t make you feel guilty after as it’s not too indulgent, but it’s one of those heart warming dishes that really makes you feel that much better.

Ingredients (serves 2 people):

  • Olive Oil
  • 2 x garlic cloves
  • 3 x rashers smoked bacon
  • 2 x heaped tbsp of Light Philapdelphia
  • 2 or 3 x mushrooms
  • 1 x handful frozen peas
  • black pepper
  • 120g shell pasta
  • salt

And here is how you make it:

  • Heat a frying pan and pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil into it
  • On a separate hob heat some water in a saucepan and add a pinch of salt to the water
  • Chop the bacon into bite size pieces and add this to your heated pan, stir intermittently
  • Add your 120g of shell pasta into the boiling saucepan of water and leave for 10 minutes
  • Take a ladelful of the hot water and put into a small saucepan on a low heat and add the sliced mushrooms. Put a lid on this pan
  • Crush 2 cloves of garlic into the frying pan and mix with the bacon, let this fry for a couple of minutes
  • The mushrooms should be all cooked now, so pour the mushrooms and the water they have been cooking in, into the frying pan
  • Add 2 heaped tablespoons of Light Philadephia and mix until smooth
  • Throw in a handful of frozen peas and leave to simmer for a minute or so
  • Pop a pinch of black pepper in
  • Drain the cooked pasta and add to the frying pan, mix well so the pasta is completely incorporated
  • Serve and enjoy!
