I love the flavour of mushrooms, my kids don’t like the texture, but this tomato bacon pasta sauce with hidden mushrooms solves the problem!
I get to have the yummy mushroom flavour in my pasta sauce, the kiddos don’t have to deal with the texture, and as an added bonus it adds extra veggies to the pasta sauce!
Before I go on I would like to say a huge thank you to Noel Leeming for making this post possible. I use my Nutribullet for so many things, if you are after other ways to use a blender check out Nutribullet Recipes – That aren’t just Smoothies

As far as mushrooms go, if I’m honest I didn’t like the texture of mushrooms when I was little either!
I still serve them mushrooms in other meals, so that they are exposed to them in their whole un-hidden form, but I do love this pasta sauce as a quick family-friendly meal!
