Bacon, Mushroom and Pea Linguine

Feeling like I had the beginnings of some fluey illness I really didn’t feel like cooking last night. My memory of a dish my mother used to make had been jogged recently and so I put in a quick call for a lesson on how to make said dish.  As a child we regularly had Tagliatelle with Bacon, Mushrooms and Peas. I never normally buy double cream but it had come free with some strawberries so I knew I had just the right ingredients – well almost, I only had enough tagliatelle for two so opted for the linguine instead. I have to say it was just as delicious.

What’s your quick dish for those I can’t cook but I have to nights?

This dish is easy peasy, hey maybe it should be called Easy Peasy Linguine! So you fry your bacon, tip in your mushroom and garlic, fry a little longer and then add your peas and not long after your cream. Then toss together with the linguine. See, told you it was easy.

Now get your Parmesan out and give a generous grating!

    Lovely recipe. I’d add tomatoes too.

    Ha ! I guess they are an acquired taste…along with olives. Do you like olives? These three ingredients can be very divisive :-)

    1. Camilla

      Oh, love olives as do the whole family. tend to eat them more whole as an appetizer, in salads or on top of pizzas though.

    Easy Peasy Linguine! Ha quite catchy Camilla! A lovely dish to cook for a weekday meal. I am a big fan of Linguine too – I use more often than Spaghetti as I prefer the width of the pasta.
    I also have Linguine Puttanesca during the weeknights which works a treat too!

      Hi Jacqueline, you’re right Linguine is nicer than Spaghetti and I ought to mix things up a bit when cooking pasta dishes. As I’m not a caper/anchovy kind of girl (pa) we eat a lot of Amatriciana mid week with wholemeal penne so I’m going to use Linguine next time!
