Ingredients:

  • 25 g butter
  • 150 g button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 rindless bacon rashers, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 300 ml cream

  • 375 g fettuccine
  • 1/3 cup grated romano cheese

How to Make:

  1. Melt butter in a large frying pan over high heat. Add mushrooms, bacon and garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until browned.
  2. Add cream and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in plenty of boiling salted water 10-12 minutes, or until tender but firm to the bite. Drain, return to pan. Add sauce, cheese and chives to pasta. Toss to combine. Serve at once.

Tips:

  • For vegan version, substitute cream with avocado, butter with olive oil, bacon with coconut or tempeh bacon, and romano cheese with vegan parmesan cheese.
  • You can also replace the fettuccine with any other kind of pasta.
