Really Really Really Bad Pasta

Ok so the title is a reference to the fat content not the taste as this recipe is absolutely delicious. Julia and I usually cook with low fat ingredients where possible as you may have noticed. This recipe does not in any way reflect this trend so don't come running to me if you have a heart attack in the night. Sorry about the picture, it has been very cold for the last few nights and as a result the food is obscured by the clouds of steam rising from the dish.

Pasta for four, we used spaghetti this time but anything will do.
1 packet of diced/chopped bacon 250g/9OZ
4 large field musrooms
1 onion diced
1 bottle of cream 500ml/1 pint
Salt & pepper
A dash of oil
Fresh parmesan

Cook the onion and bacon in a little oil , cook the mushrooms separately.
Cook the pasta and at the same time add the cream to the bacon and onion and simmer (be aware that the sauce can actually take up to half an hour so perhaps start your pasta a little later). Stir the sauce all the time while it thickens and reduces, do not leave it as it is easy to burn. When ready the sauce should be pourable but thick and slightly golden in colour.
Drain your pasta and add the sauce to the pasta pot. Serve and finish off with mushrooms and parmesan. Approximately 8000 calories per serving.
