Creamy Pancetta Linguine

This recipe is quick but tasty, the creamy sauce combined with the soft mushrooms and crispy pancetta finished with a slight nutty flavour from the parmesan is one of my favourite pasta dishes. I prefer using linguine or bucatini rather than spaghetti as I like the pasta thicker. This is a great recipe if you’re pushed for time but still want a good home cooked meal.


  • Pancetta
  • Mushrooms
  • Cream
  • Parmesan
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Linguine


  1. Add a small amount of olive to the frying pan and cook the pancetta completely.
  2. Remove the pancetta and cook through the mushrooms.
  3. Once cooked, add the Pancetta back into the pan with the cream and parmesan,
  4. Crush the garlic and add to the sauce.
  5. Simmer while the pasta is cooking.
  6. Take some of the water the pasta was cooked in and add to the sauce, I usually add around half a ladle depending how thick you like it.
  7. Drain the pasta and add to the frying pan.
  8. Mix well and serve.
