Now let’s talk about Bacon and Beer and Mushrooms and even a little asparagus!
Here’s what you will need: 1 bunch of asparagus, roasted with salt, pepper, olive oil and a little parm (425F for 12 minutes)
Bacon Mushroom & Beer Alfredo
1 Cups of Mushrooms, sautéed in olive oil
1 can of beer (I used Anthem’s Golden One brewed by a friend’s son)
2 Cups heavy cream
1 stick of butter
6 cloves garlic peeled and finely chopped
2 Cups freshly grated Parmesan
1 Pound thinly sliced bacon, fried crisp and roughly chopped
Pasta, whatever kind you want – I used Angle Hair
1 bag of scallops – I used giant sea scallops and the bag had about 15.
Directions: Roast the Asparagus, sauté the mushrooms, and fry the bacon all at once (in different pans of course) and set aside.
Pour out all the bacon grease out of the pan but using that pan, pour in the can of beer and put in the garlic.
Let it simmer on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Add cream and allow to simmer another 5 minutes.
Then put in the butter and Parmesan stirring well.
Finally add the bacon asparagus and mushrooms.
Once the pasta is cooked and drained, put the scallops in a little olive oil cooking about 3 minutes on each side – don’t let them overcook! Plate pasta noodles, then a few scallops and finally use a ladle to drizzle the Alfredo sauce on top.
Sprinkle extra Parmesan and green onion on top for more color.

Now that is a recipe to be proud of just like you are proud of your daughter.
Kel, Top Girl is amazing and so is her mom! What an expiring story and I wish she would share it with other students who are struggling. I think it is so interesting the different way she see things. (Really, she mastered the claw????) So glad you told this along with the AMAZING bacon recipe!
We used to go to support groups and talk to parents about being the parent and being the child and how it is possible to make headway and lead a productive life – and I used to tell them there was light at the end of the tunnel as long as they didn’t let it consume them. Some parents do that. Thanks for the encouragement! and yes, she mastered the claw!
3 prizes!! wow Your Top Girl is a genius.
Bacon seems to make (almost) everything taste better…and I love the add of scallops too.
You pasta looks terrific!!! I think Bill would be happy if i served him bacon every single day!
PS what a wonderful story about your daughter. Mine has cerebral palsy and I have shared some of your fears as well as victories of our own. You are one amazing mama! xo
Awwww….how sweet! So you know how it is then – I’m so happy for your victories! They always far outweigh the fears – most days! 🙂
Be still my heart! Bacon, mushrooms, AND beer in pasta? Must have right now!
