Bacon. Yum. 
Broccoli. Yum. 
Pasta. Double dang yum. 
I love to make any type of pasta! How can you go wrong when you're adding bacon? I don't think you can. My kids devour this when I make it. Heck, we all do. It's got the bacon flavor, fresh broccoli, and creamy goodness with the right amount of spice! 


  • 6 cups cooked pasta bowties (about 1/2 lb)
  • 2 large slabs of bacon (mine were thick and long, if you get regular bacon, you may need to use about 4-5 pieces)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth 
  • 4 cups broccoli florets 
  • 1 stick butter
  • 4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 4 tsp slap ya mama seasoning 
  • 2 cups heavy cream 
  • 1 and 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese  


  • Boil pasta and set it aside 
  • Place the bacon in a pan and start cooking it 
  • Cook on medium/medium-high so you will render the fat 
  • After each side is browned, remove from the pan, chop it and set it aside 
  • Add the broccoli to the pan and pour in the chicken broth
  • Place a lid on top so your broccoli will start to soften 
  • Once it is softened to your liking, add the butter 
  • Add mushrooms 
  • Add 2 tsp of the slap ya mama seasoning 
  • Let mushrooms simmer down until softened 
  • Add heavy whipping cream and bring to a boil 
  • Keep stirring 
  • Add pasta while it is still boiling and allow it to simmer with the cream for about 5 minutes, keep stirring 
  • Turn off heat and add cheese 
  • Stir around to mix well 
  • Serve!
