Traditional creamy pasta dishes have oodles of fat and calories. The healthier Pasta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce uses fresh herbs, low-fat sour cream, Canadian bacon, and less shell pasta.
Gently cook bacon, onion and garlic in a large saucepan until soft. Add mushrooms. Cook 3 minutes. Drain fat. Remove from heat. Add sour cream, pasta, pepper, and thyme; combine. Stir in cooked pasta.
Serve hot in pasta bowls.
If desired, serve sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese and a green salad and/or vegetables.
If nonfat sour cream is available, it can be substituted in an equal amount.
