    • Cook the pasta as per package directions. Usually the instructions suggests adding cooking oil and few pinches of salt in the boiling water. If not indicated in the instructions, you can add cooking oil and salt to prevent the pasta from sticking together. Drain and set aside.
    • In a medium size pan, heat butter and saute garlic and onion until the onions are soft and fragrant. Then add the sliced mushrooms and saute until all sides are seared and slightly brown.
    • Then add the milk, cream of mushroom and all-purpose cream. Bring to a boil while stirring and simmer until the sauce thickens. Add in the fried bacon and season with salt, pepper and sugar.
    • Add in also half of the parsley and grated cheese. Continue stirring until all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Turn off heat. Pour on the cooked pasta and garnish with the other half of chopped parsley and grated cheese.
