Really simple and easy to make. We added a chicken breast so that we could get some protein and this worked well.

I tried it with the aubergine (as suggested as an alternative) - wasn't so keen to be honest - still love the mushroom version though.

Really easy & lovely with wholewheat pasta - give it a good nutty flavour. I often stir through a little half fat creme fraiche too.

This was really lovely. The mushrooms tasted fantastic with the lemon. I added a couple of tablespoons of creme fraiche.
