Bacon & Mushroom Pasta


Oh hey there good looking

Oh hey there good looking

This sauce is a real delicious indulgence. I love making it with tortellini, but I haven’t gotten round to buying gluten-free tortellini yet. Instead I used whole rice spaghetti (Rice&Rice), which was pretty good. I managed to get the consistency right, it was a nice ‘al dente’, and my dad, who is really picky about his pasta, loved it too. I find that brown rice pasta is always better than white rice pasta, texture-wise. It feels more like ‘real ‘pasta to me.
