Low Syn Creamy Pasta with Bacon, Peas and Mushrooms

I am a total pasta fiend. When I started Slimming World I wasn’t sure how I was going to survive without some of my favourite dishes. Thankfully, I’ve managed to come up with adaptations for all of them, which haven’t compromised on the taste!

Low Syn Creamy Pasta with Bacon, Peas and Mushrooms

This creamy Low Syn Creamy Pasta with Bacon, Peas and Mushrooms uses Lightest Philadelphia. This is only half of your Healthy Extra A! The parmesan has been synned for arguments sake, but really this can also be included as part of your Healthy Extra A.

Some people might think adding peas to pasta is a bit odd, but they really add so much flavour. With loads of mushrooms, this is full of speed food – if you wanted to add extra, serve with a leafy salad. A spray of balsamic vinegar on the salad would cut through the richness of the pasta really well.

For a vegetarian alternative to this Low Syn Creamy Pasta with Bacon, Peas and Mushrooms, replace the bacon with Quorn, or some Healthy Extra B nuts. Just make sure you season well as the bacon adds a saltiness.

  1. Boil the pasta as per the instructions on the packet.
  2. Cut the bacon into strips, ensuring any fat is removed. To a non-stick saucepan add the bacon and mushrooms and cook on a moderate heat until tender. Add the garlic and cook for a further couple of minutes, keeping a close eye on it to ensure the garlic does not burn.
  3. Add the frozen peas and stir well. Season generously with pepper and salt - remembering that the bacon can be salty. Turn down the heat to low, and stir in the Lightest Philadelphia and parmesan. Do not let it boil or the cheese will burn.
  4. Once the pasta is cooked, add to the sauce and stir to coat all of the pasta - enjoy!

  1. I do simular but use quark as completely free. Also cook down courgettes and garlic with crispy smokey bacon mmmmm

    1. Hi Vickie
      Quark is a great Syn free alternative, but it’s not to everyones taste, so using Philadelphia as your HEA is great for those that don’t like the taste of quark
