Pasta Farfalle with Mushroom & Bacon Garnish

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!  Well, the Bailey’s Irish Cheese Cake I made the other day was a success. Everyone loved it, and it disappeared rather quickly. 🙂  I was a bit worried that it might not be liked because I had never made it before so glad everyone enjoyed it!! 

My weekend was quiet, I had planned on making something different yesterday but plans changed rather quickly. Hubby is not feeling well, sore throat, coughing, etc. so I made chicken soup for him and a Pasta dish for me.  I love eating smaller versions of pasta, than the usual long pasta like Spaghetti, don’t get me wrong, I do love Linguini topped with a lovely tomato sauce and Parmesan Cheese or my favorite Greek Cheese for pasta topping Kefalotyri.  

I have made this pasta dish many times before by using cubed chicken instead of bacon which tastes just as good. I usually put in just a dash of Olive Oil when frying the chicken, but this time  I decided to use margarine an Italian brand named Bertolli, (they originally started  out with Olive Oil) unsalted margarine which I find to be so tasty in my opinion.  I sometimes  use this to make homemade doughs for my pies for example Spinach pie, or Cheese pie. The olive oil within the butter just gives the dough a smoother texture, which is much easier to work with when kneading by hand, and when baked it has a delicious taste to it. 🙂 

If your local supermarket carries the Bertolli Brand Butter with Olive Oil give it a try and let me know what you think. 🙂

Wishing everyone a good week!! 🙂
