Hey, hope everyone is having a great day. Todays recipe is an all american comfort food dish. Very rich and delicious as a side dish or by itself. Enjoy!

Ingredients:  Whole grain Penne Pasta
6-8 slices bacon
2 cups slices baby bella mushrooms (wipe clean)
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup of mozzerella cheese

Cook pasta to package directions. Drain. In a non-stick pan cook mushrooms in butter until tender. Remove mushrooms and place in a casserole dish sprayed with pam. Add bacon to pan and cook completely. Remove from pan and cool/crumble into pieces. Place in casserole dish with mushrooms. Add 1 tablespoon flour to mushroom/bacon pan, mix and add cream cheese and milk stirring constantly on low heat until sause thickens. You can add a tablespoon of lemon zest if you wish. In casserole dish fold in cooked noodles, sause with mushrooms and bacon. Mix in 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake at 425* for about 15-20 or until slightly brown on top. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

Twist:  If you are entertaining bake and serve in individual side dishes. Always nice to add a special touch when serving to your guests.

You can always substitute frozen (drained) spinache for the mushrooms as well.

Vegeterain twist:  Omit bacon and cook with mushroom and spinache.

Tomorrow:  "Bean Soup"
