you won't believe how yummy this is, until you've tried it - i wish id made double. don't omit the mushrooms and parsley, they are crucial to this dish. my son hates mushrooms but he ate it all up. don't bother with creme fraiche if you don't have it to hand - cream will do just as well. more changes I made - reduce the amount of pasta if you are feeding less , i used 5 large Waitrose Italian sausages with fennel for 250g of pasta.

A quick, tasty supper which we all enjoyed. I used single cream as I didn't have any creme fraiche but it didn't seem to make any difference to the overall taste!

Had this for supper last night and really enjoyed it, although we were naughty and used cream instead of creme fraiche as I had some that needed using up. Would do again.

I agree this recipe is awesome! Its basically carbonara. Easy quick and great tasting, what else do you want? This is going to be one of our weekly recipes from now on. I added lemon zest as well and some chilli flakes to give it a zing. :) bon appetit

This pasta is delicious! It is lovely as it is but I used South African boerewors (sausage) which made it even better. It hasn't failed to impress and I have cooked it at least 5 times.

Loved this! It was v quick to make, using store cupboard ingredients, I added some frozen spinach to add colour, which worked great! Couldn't believe it my 3 year old commented i like mushrooms now!' Got to be good my boys eating mushrooms and spinach! will def make again

I used Linda McCartney sausages and it tasted gorgeous and added more mushrooms. Simple and yummy!! Would definitely make again.

Very nice. I missed out the egg as I wasn't sure it'd be cooked enough for my 1 year old to eat. A bit salty but very tasty.

This dish was very tasty - I think the snoky bacon gave that extra bit of flavour.
I had a lot of parsley, so felt that I didn't need peas or courgette for colour, but would consider adding them for taste and an extra vegetable

Really tasty to start off with, but got a bit sickly. Should have crisped the bacon off a bit more, as the chewy rind wasn't very pleasant.

This is a firm favourite in our house. Really cheap, tasty midweek meal. Just one thing though I don't know who decides what a portion is, but by strictly following all the weights and measures in this receipe I get something that feeds 6 - and that's with a hungry teenage boy in the house! So that makes it an even better budget meal.

Absolutely amazing! Loved it so much! Made sure to use a spicy sausage with lots of flavor to get that extra zing.

Also added peas tp give some colour. Maybe a little light on the sauce, will certainly make again, probably 3 eggs and a little more creme fraiche

Lovely. Really quick and easy work night dinner. I added a leek and peas and it made all the difference. Very tasty.

I was really surprised how delicious this was! Used home made sausages and added a red pepper and caramelized an onion. Will make again and again.
