Wild Garlic, Mushroom and Bacon Sauce

Wild Garlic, Mushroom and Bacon Sauce

Wild garlic is in abundance in my garden at the moment. I've already made some batches of wild garlic pesto which are stashed in the fridge (great for a quick and easy pasta supper) but decided to make a more robust sauce for pasta using the raw leaves. I stirred the sauce through some four cheese tortellini but any type of pasta, fresh or dried would be fine.


| Serves: 2 as a pasta sauce | Prep Time: 5 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes | Total Time: 15 Minutes |



  • 4 Rashers Smoked Bacon, chopped
  • 150g Chestnut Mushrooms, sliced
  • Handful of Wild Garlic, shredded
  • 200ml Creme Fraiche
  • Handful of Parmesan, grated
  • Ground Black Pepper


  • Step 1: Fry the bacon, mushroom and garlic in some oil unitl cooked.
  • Step 2: Add the creme fraiche and parmesan and stir to combine.
  • Step 3: Serve stirred through your favourite pasta with a grinding of black pepper.

  1. Sounds delicious!

  2. This sounds so good. I can't remember the last time I had bacon. Right now I'd love to have this poured over a big bowl of pasta.

  5. Great recipe for wild garlic – I wish I had a stash! LOVE this idea- have only really put it through salads and eggs so far. Pasta and risottos, consider yourself warned. You're next.
    Thanks :)

  6. Love the sound/look for this sauce, not sure if it's a good call but I'm tempted to try it with a big old piece of steak and thick cut chips!
