Mushroom Pasta Bake
A delicious pasta packed with hearty flavours.
- 3 cups mushroom soup
- 70 g bacon diced (optional)
- 1 cup button mushrooms sliced
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme
- 1 cup gruyere cheese grated
- 150 g penne pasta
Preheat your oven to 180° C / 356° F
Cook the pasta according to package. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile in a small pan fry the bacon until it just starts to get crispy. Add the button mushrooms and fry for another 2-4 minutes.
In an ovenproof dish, mix the pasta with the mushroom soup, the thyme, the mushrooms and the bacon.
Sprinkle with the grated cheese and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
You can easily leave out the bacon if you want to make this dish vegetarian. Just add a splash of oil first when you fry the mushrooms.
