Non E Carbonara

As the title suggests, this recipe isn't for carbonara. However, it's pretty similar and makes a quick, easy, tasty pasta supper.

Serves 1

  • 1 clove garlic
  • a few mushrooms
  • some ham or bacon
  • 150ml creme fraiche
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • roughly a thumb-sized piece of grano padano or parmesan, grated
  • pasta (I tend to use tagliatelle or linguine but whatever you prefer)

Fry some garlic and mushrooms in a little oil while the pasta water comes to the boil. Throw in some ham or bacon as well, if you've got it to hand. Once the mushrooms and garlic have softened, add the creme fraiche. Add the pasta to the water

As the creme fraiche warms up, add the lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Once the sauce starts bubbling, mix in the cheese.

By now the pasta should have cooked, drain it and toss it in the sauce. Enjoy.
