serves four

8 ounces of pasta, any kind
4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound of mushrooms, each cut in half
2 slices of green onions, diced
2 tablespoons of flour
1 cup of half-and-half
1 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1 ounce package frozen peas, rinsed with hot water to thaw

Prepare pasta conventionally as label directs; drain. Keep warm. Meanwhile, in 3-quart casserole, cook bacon at HIGH (100% power) 4 minutes, stirring occasionally until crisp; drain on paper towels. Add mushrooms and green onions to casserole. Cook at HIGH 2 minutes. Stir in flour, then add half-and-half, milk, salt, and pepper; cover. Cook at HIGH 8 to 10 minutes until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Stir in peas. Cook at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes until peas and sauce are heated. Toss sauce, Parmesan cheese, and bacon with pasta.
