Pasta With Pork Mince Mushrooms and Double Cream

This recipe is one of our kids’ favourites, and I’ve always had it for lunch and for dinner. Pasta with pork mince mushrooms and double cream it’s an Italian recipe with Hungarian flavours and spices that will give the dish a great taste.

It’s better to say an Italian recipe adapted to our tastes. The cooking time is about one hour and medium-difficult. Let’s begin!

Ingredients

Pasta With Pork Mince-Pork Mince, Pasta, Mushrooms, Onion, Bell Peppers, Pancetta and Double Cream on the Table

I will use in this recipe half a kilogram of pork mince of 18% fat, but you can also use a mixture of pork and beef if you want, and for extra flavour and texture, I will put 100 g of slightly smoked pancetta.

And because this recipe is impossible without some vegetables, we will need a big onion, two bell peppers; I chose one yellow and one red, and half a kilo of mushrooms.

We will give the preparation a fine and creamy texture with the help of 300 ml double cream, which we will add towards the end.

You can also use any pasta, from spaghetti to farfalle; I decided to boil some penne that I will serve with this great dish.

Preparing the Ingredients

Preparing the ingredients does not require too much time because you have to clean and chop the onion first.
