- 2 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche
Dry-fry the sausage meat in a non-stick pan for 8-10 mins until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, then remove and set aside. Fry bacon and mushrooms for 5-8 mins until golden, return the sausage meat and keep warm.
Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Make the sauce by beating together the Parmesan, egg yolks, most of the parsley and the crème fraîche. When the pasta is cooked, drain, reserving a ladle of the cooking water.
Combine the pasta and meat mixture over a low heat and add the sauce. Season and quickly mix, adding a splash of cooking water if it’s a little thick. Spoon into bowls and eat with the extra Parmesan shavings and remaining parsley on top.
Make it veggie
For a vegetarian alternative, replace the meat with an extra 300g mixed wild mushrooms, fry until brown and use a vegetarian Parmesan.
