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.

We really liked this dish but the colour wasn't too good!

This one didn't work for me. No depth of flavour in the sauce and I felt it lacked an extra element. Also, the colour wasn't very appealing.

I left out the bacon and used italian sausages. The sauce was VERY delicious and SO easy. It has given be the confidence to make a low fat "carbonara"

I enjoyed it the way it was - but some peas or something else green might be nice added for contrasting freshness.

Added some sliced corgette to the mushrooms and meat (fried all together). This made a bit more juice so needed to fry for longer, but this is what i intended as i like crisper bacon... REALLY loved this recipe. One of the best finds on here. Not my usual kind of thing but tasted excellent and very easy to do.. in fact i had more trouble making a salad to go with it than this pasta dish!!

As Heather says, the 'sauce' is really good, very different and I think would work well with other dishes too. Great because the ingredients are store cupboard standbys and very quick and easy to do. I added some peas to the pasta just before the end of it's cooking time just to add some colour. We didn't have any parsely, but basil did just as well.

Will definitely become a mid-week regular.

Did this for tea last night, it was lovely! I really liked the 'sauce', it was a lovely texture, and tasted really good. I would definitely do this again.

Tha made a nice change from the many tomato based pasta dishes my family endures! We all enjoyed it. I used our homemade sausages from ournhome reared pigs and it was delicious!

Brilliant! I swapped the parmesan cheese for grated mozerella as I'm not a fan and this was delicious and is now my top pasta dish
