Prepare the Ingredients
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
Cook the Beef and Mushrooms
Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add bacon and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir constantly until green onions start to soften, 1-2 minutes.
Add ground beef, mushrooms, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir often, breaking up meat, until mushrooms are softened, no pink remains on ground beef, and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-6 minutes.
Drain excess oil from pan, if desired.
Make Sauce and Add Pasta
Stir cream cheese, demi-glace, ⅓ cup water, and garlic salt into hot pan. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, stir constantly until combined and cream cheese is melted, 2-3 minutes.
Stir in pasta and Swiss cheese until creamy. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Remove from burner. Taste, and add a pinch of salt and pepper, if desired.
