7.05 (200 g) penne pasta

7.05 oz (200 g) mushrooms

2 yellow onions

3 garlic cloves

7.05 oz (200g) diced bacon

0.4 cups (1 dl) white wine

1 chicken bouillon cube

1.06 cups (2.5 dl) cooking cream


0.71 oz (20 g) parmesan

0.25 bundle fresh parsley



  1. Boil pasta in heavily salted water according to box instructions.
  2. Grab your trusty KUMA knife and cut onion and garlic to fine pieces. Wash and then slice mushrooms into quarters.
  3. Heat up a pan without grease and add bacon. Cook until crispy and then move bacon over to a paper towel (we set aside the bacon to keep it crispy). Don’t throw away the bacon grease in the pan.
  4. Put the pan back on the heat and add garlic and onion to sauté until soft. Add mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes.
  5. Add white wine and let it simmer for a minute.
  6. Crumble in bouillon cube and add cooking cream.
  7. Let everything simmer for 5 minutes. Then taste with salt and pepper.
  8. When pasta is finished, move the pasta over to your pan with sauce. Add a couple tablespoons of the pasta water to the sauce as well. This adds flavor and gives the sauce an even creamier consistency.
  9. Stir well and finally add your crispy bacon.
  10. Serve immediately with chopped fresh parsley and parmesan cheese on top.
