Mushroom & Spinach Sour Cream Pasta

I always thought that cooking cream is usually the way to whip up a good pasta but somehow after trying out this recipe, I am convinced that sour cream can also be a good alternative to achieve a tasty and flavourful pasta.

And if given a choice for pasta, I will always choose the one that comes with bacon as it releases a good aroma to the oil and enhance the pasta taste greatly. The crunchy bacon bits after frying is what I so-love about eating pasta with it as well. Other than bacon, I love a good blend of mushroom and spinach as they tend to bring out the colours and nutrients of the dish naturally.

It’s not easy to score a good pasta recipe and here’s one to begin with !
