Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 12-inch skillet cook bacon over medium heat until brown and crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving drippings. Add mushrooms, garlic, salt, and black pepper to skillet. Cook and stir 8 to 10 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and browned, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.

  • Add cream and broth to skillet with mushrooms. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbly and slightly thickened. Crumble bacon; add to skillet. Stir in pasta, vinegar, and chives; heat through.


Creminis (sometimes called baby bellas) are portobellos that haven't matured. They are slightly firmer and fuller in flavor than button mushrooms. Substitute a mix of wild mushrooms for even more earthy flavor.
