The photo was taken by my husband before he devoured his second helping. The recipe is actually a tad bit more than I made but it makes for more helpings (as neither my father in law, myself or mother in law got a 2nd helping) and it will also be okay to eat as left overs. Also to be honest, I was just cutting and dicing and not paying much attention.
Bacon Broccoli Pasta
1 small red onion---diced....again watch out this will make you cry
12-16 slices bacon cut in half, cooked and crumbled
6 Tbsp butter,
4 Tbsp cornstarch
2-3 cups milk (depending on how thick you want your sauce. If you want it a bit runny, add more milk)
Spaghetti noodles (I guesstimated on how much noodles to cook)
2-3 cups mushrooms ----diced
2 cups broccoli---diced
2 Tbsp olive oil (I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Step One: Dice your onions, mushrooms, and broccoli.
Step Two: Start boiling your water for your pasta while you cook your bacon....you want it crispy so you can crumble it.
Step Three: When bacon is almost done cooking, put olive oil in a deep skillet and saute your red onions until transparent. Throw in your mushrooms and your broccoli. Cook for about 5 minutes. When bacon is done, crumble and throw into onion mixture.
Step Four: Add your pasta to pan of water if the water is boiling. Add your "cream" by mixing together your milk and cornstarch. Stir in to make a "paste" or sauce. This is where you will add in your butter as well.
Step Five: Drain your pasta but leave about a cup of water in case your sauce is too thick (or you can just add a bit more milk).
Step Six: Put pasta in onion mixture and toss to cover in sauce/paste.
Step Seven: Serve with some Parmesan cheese.
