Bacon, Mushroom and Pea Linguine

Bacon, Mushroom and Pea Linguine - @FabFood4All

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 don’t usually 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 Bacon, Mushroom and Pea Linguine 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.

      Thanks, it is yummy:-)

  4. William Gould

    Wife makes a similar dish without the peas and Crème Fresh instead of cream!

  5. Viv

    i might give that a try – even though not a fan of peas.

    My quick dish is lentil & chickpea ‘casserole’
    1 large onion finely chopped
    1 tin 440g cherry tomatoes (chopped toms will do)
    1 tin 440g green lentils
    1 tin 440g chick peas
    (I also add in any left over veg lurking in the fridge)
    Garam masala
    fresh spinach
    natural yoghurt to serve

    Sautee the onion until soft. Add chickpeas, lentils and tomatoes. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add garam masala to taste (or curry powder if you prefer more of a kick). Stir in fresh spinach. Add a spoon of natural yoghurt to each serving.

  13. Maya Russell

    Lovely recipe. I’d add tomatoes too.

  14. Jacqueline @How to be a Gourmand

    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!

    1. Camilla

      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!
