Penne With Asparagus and Mushrooms

I love this pasta dish in the summer. It is filling without being too heavy, and fresh asparagus in season is the best. This is not meant to have a heavy sauce, just a light cream that's full of flavor to coat the ingredients. Proscuitto or ham may be substituted for the bacon, but you'll probably need to add a tablespoon of butter to saute the onion and mushrooms.
