Creamy Pasta Sauce

Serves 4 serves


  • 4 shallots finely chopped
  • 4 bacon slices rind removed and chopped
  • 200g button mushrooms sliced
  • 250ml cream for cooking softened


  • Combine shallots and bacon in large frying pan over a moderate heat and cook, stirring until the bacon is crisp.
  • Add mushrooms and stir until softened.
  • Add Cream for cooking and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes allowing the flavours to meld.
  • Season to taste.

Recipe Notes

Clever idea: Mushrooms are a lean protein source as they have zero cholesterol, fats and very low carbohydrates. Never peel mushrooms as most of the vitamin B12 (the energy superstar) is present on their surface. To this yummy sauce, add some freshly chopped parsley for colour and flavour. Serve over pasta, rice or even a baked potato.

What other people thought of the recipe “Creamy Pasta Sauce”

  • Helen Skidzevicius says:

    Loved the creaminess and ease of this recipe. I added diced red capsicum, carrot, and broccoli to mine. Being lactose intolerant I used lactose free cream cheese instead of the cooking cream, but 150g only. This is such a versatile recipe. It is my go to when I need a cream sauce for a recipe.
