Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Lovely! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I would increase the 'sauce' to pasta ratio next time. It was very straightforward to make gluten-free - an extra bonus!

Very easy to make and resulted in clean plates and full tummies all round. Not the healthiest but nice to have now and again.

Wery tasty, I wasn't sure if cream and sausage goes together but it does, I added twice the amount of cream and threw in cayenne pepper, other than that I didn't change a thing, will definitely make it agan!!

I made this for 2 this evening and it was quick, easy and went down very well. I used half the amount of pasta but kept the mushroom and egg/sauce quantity the same. I also used a few spring onions and a yellow pepper instead of the bacon. I did use the same amount of sausage but my son loves his meat!! They were ordinary low fat supermarket sausages so nothing special but this was a great midweek supper. Will definitely make again and went down very well wtih my son who likes pasta but really doesn't care for tomato based sauces.

This was a gorgeous recipe packed woth lots of flavour and so quick and easy to make. I think th echoice of sausage would contribute to the flavour and I didnt really measure the cheese as we love parmesan. Only mad it 3 days ago and requested again for dinner tonight,happy to oblige! May add some spinach for extra veggies .

Simple and delicious--such a nice slight twist on a carbonara. Husband raved and wanted more. :)

Brilliant recipe! Very delicious. Although I changed the Parmesan to Gloucester cheese and the eggs/creme fraiche to cream cheese and I also added some leeks. Gorgeous dish! :)

Yummy! I can't help feeling that this is a bit on the fatty side for a mid week supper, but it's certainly quick and delicious. I didn't have a huge amount of mushrooms so used some very finely diced celery and peppers to bulk out - worked well. Also substituted Parmesan with cheddar and creme fraiche with low fat natural yogurt. Recommended!

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.
