Really lovely and easy dish. I also added extra garlic and freash flat leaf parsley. Highly recommended dish.

This is a really quick and easy recipe. Fried an onion and 2 cloves of garlic along with the bacon and took on board previous comments and added some white wine and a drop of pasta water to make some sauce. Added some 50% Creme Fraiche at the end with the spinach along with a good twist of black pepper. A really lovely, mid-week meal.

A lovely simple creamy receipe that is healthy . I added a spoon of sour cream and it lightened the receipe up. Thank you

I used the basis of this sauce, added creme fraiche as suggested and a splash of wine to thin it down a little, let it bubble away and then served with pan fried, skinless/boneless chicken thighs instead of pasta, with mashed potatoes and veggies on the side, tasted great and the b/f loved it.

Lovely recipe! I added 2 tablespoons of low fat creme fraiche as mentioned above, but it was still a little dry so a bit more next time. Lovely cheesy sauce which both me & my partner enjoyed. Very easy to make!

Loved it! Used back bacon instead of streaky and added a ladlespoon of pasta water as read the comments above (Thank you!) and it was delicious. Also, first crisp panfried the mushrooms then separately the bacon, then combined as was worried of mushrooms releasing water. Will make again!

Gorgeous! I used 100g of gorgonzola for the two of us and added a dollop of two of creme fraiche (as per Lindsay's suggestion - thanks, Lindsay!) as well as a glug of the pasta water to loosen cheese and make it 'saucier'. Seriously good.

Loved it, very tasty. used 70 grams more cheese, (which I found on a cheese board at the pub do last night, amazing what you can fit on a cocktail stick) and a small pot of soured cream. Woman found the cheese a tad strong, and boy spent all his time picking out all the spinach and shrooms, but I thought it was excellent. I think I'm going to add the juice from half a lemon next time to give it even more zest. MDW. Woof woof.

Really nice and tasty meal! I'm not sure if I used a strong enough blue cheese though - I should have used Gorgonzola instead of the regular blue cheese I had in the fridge. Next time I do it I'll probably double the quantity of blue cheese to make it stronger, or go out and get sone Gorgonzola as the recipe states. :-)

This is delicious and extremely quick. I added 50ml per person of creme fraiche to add a little extra moistness - so not too many extra calories.
