Lovely! I used a sweet pepper rather than the shallots.

This was amazing! :) it was very delicious and tasteful :) Did everything as the recipe except pancetta as I did not have. Will include them though next time. This is a new mid-week favourite. Husband enjoyed it and will definitely do it again.

Delicious and very easy. I added a splash of white wine and a tablespoon of creme fraiche, as I had them the cupboard, didn't have any parsley so used dried rosemary. Served with pasta but I think it would work well with rice or potatoes. Will definitely make it again.

Very easy to make. Tip - add garlic when frying the mushrooms for extra flavour and add a couple of tbsp of plain flour to the sauce whilst cooking to thicken it up. Tasty. I used chicken on the bone this time (so had to cook for longer) but next time will use chicken breasts
