  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.

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.

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
