Cheesy Penne

Pasta is on the top list of my favorite cooks at home. I've been trying different variations from red sauce,white sauce,oil-base sauce etc.My daughter loves my pasta dishes and always encourage me to make a new variant for her, she's my no 1 fan in the kitchen. She's my best critique, well kids don't lie :D

Cheesy Penne
200 gm Penne Pasta
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for sautéing
mushroom (optional, I used small can of button mushrooms pieces and stem)
100 g bacon chopped in small pieces (optional, or you can use ground chicken, or ham bits)
1 small Onion minced
1 garlic cloves minced
1/2 cup cheese spread (can be adjusted depend on you, I used cheese whiz)
1 cup grated cheese (I used regular eden cheese)
1 1/2 cup cream ( I used milk for substitute)
chopped Parsley (optional)

1. Cook pasta al dente  according to package direction (put salt and oil when the water boils). Drain and toss in the cheese spread and set aside
2. For the sauce, sauté garlic and onion. Add bacon and mushroom cooked for about a minute or until brown
3. Pour in the milk then the cheese, simmer until the cheese melts, season with salt and pepper.
4. Turn off heat and toss in the pasta. Topped with parsley if desire.

Served hot with Garlic Bread.

Enjoy eating!
