This is a great meatless dish that my family loves. Serve with garlic bread and a salad.

  • 5 - 6 c
    chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 Tbsp
    butter, unsalted
  • 5 - 6 slice
    smoked bacon,chopped into small dice
  • 2 clove
    garlic chopped
  • 1 lb
  • 1 lb
    baby portabella mushrooms sliced
  • 1 medium
    onion chopped
  • 5 - 6 sprig(s)
    fresh thyme
  • ·
    salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 c
    grated parmigiano-reggiano
  • ·
    a generous handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped (optional)



  1. Place the stock in a sauce pot and warm it over medium heat then reduce to simmer.
  2. Heat the extra-virgin olive oil and the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the bacon to brown. Next add the garlic and spaghetti and toast the noodles lightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add onions and mushrooms, thyme and season with salt and pepper. Soften veggies a bit, 5 minutes. Add a few ladles of stock and stir the pasta. Keep stirring adding stock a few ladles at a time allowing liquids to be mostly absorbed before adding more, as if you were preparing a risotto. When liquids are absorbed and spaghetti is cooked to al dente, 12-15 minutes, stir in cheese.
  4. Adjust salt and pepper. Turn off heat and stir another minute. Remove the thyme stems. Serve in shallow bowls and garnish with lots of parsley
