Recipe by steenae:
4 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch  pieces
2 small onions, finely chopped
2 packages (10 ounces each)  cremini mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
2 packages (10 ounces each)  white mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
1/4 cup tomato paste
2  teaspoons dried thyme
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons  red-wine vinegar
3/4 pound spaghetti
Shaved Parmesan, for garnish  (optional)
In a large  5-quart saucepan with a tight-fitting lid (that will be used later),  cook bacon over medium heat, uncovered, stirring until crispy, about 5  minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel to drain. Set  aside.
Add onion; stir until golden, about 1 minute. Add  mushrooms; cover. Cook until juices have evaporated, about 20 minutes.
Stir in tomato paste, thyme, and 2 cups water until combined; cover.  Cook until sauce has thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in parsley and  vinegar. Add bacon, reserving some for garnish, if desired.
Meanwhile, cook pasta until al dente, according to package instructions.  Drain and return to pot.
To serve, toss pasta with ragout.  Garnish with reserved bacon and shaved Parmesan, if desired.

Cheese Tortellini with Bacon, Arugula and Browned Butter
Recipe by realsimple.com
wouldyoueatthis:

I didn’t have a whole pound of tortellini (I had a 9oz package) so I played with it. I used a LOT less butter (maybe a little more than 1 teaspoon, I just used whatever was left on the tray) and I used salted so I didn’t need to add the extra salt. I put arugula in until it looked like enough, which turned out to not be enough. I would probably add more pepper next time too, but over all it was really simple, didn’t take a long time, and was delicious.
