Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms

A plateful of hot pasta covered in a delicious sauce served with fresh bread and a green salad is my idea of a great dinner. People pay a lot of money at restaurants for this kind of meal when they could easily make something just as good, if not better, at home. This recipe for Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon and Mushrooms is the perfect example of this kind of meal. It begins with healthy, 100% whole grain Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Ties -not something found on most menus and so much better for you than regular white flour pasta. The bow ties get tossed together with fresh mushrooms and a creamy, bacon-flavored tomato sauce that comes together in less than 30 minutes. I warmed up a nice loaf of bread, tossed together a simple salad and dinner was served. It was easy, less expensive and better for my family than eating out.
