  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.

Absolutely delicious my son loves it as well. Used cheese and chilli sausages and just left out the parmesan. Very filling lots left over for lunch tomorrow.

Very tasty dish - quick and easy, used shredded chicken instead of sausage though to keep calories down - made LOTS of pasta, so I had a good 5x portions from this recipe. I did double the creme fraiche tho - and also fried off some chopped onion which I think really helped to add flavour. Used dried parsley as had no fresh - will definitely make again. Had plenty leftover for work lunches.

I’d forgotten about this recipe due to the “new improved “ saved recipe section (please can we have the old one back). However when I rediscovered it I remembered how nice it was. As I was only cooking for two,I halved the recipe but kept the sauce amount to the original.

Very easy and tasty, possibly didn't need the bacon as it was quite salty, but will be making this again.

One of our favourite pasta recipes. So tasty from just a few ingredients and on the table in half an hour, excellent!

Lactose free here so used unsweetened soya milk and lacto-free cheese instead of the dairy counterparts in the sauce. Also didn't use bacon as thought it would be too salty for my toddler - replaced with onion, courgette and peppers to up the veggie content. Pleased with the creamy sauce instead of the usual tomato. Also only had three sausages and it was fine! Yum.

Excellent midweek mea, tasty ad substantial. I substituted the bacon with turkey bacon and the creme fraise with goats yoghurt and the parmesan with a hard goats cheese and I used chicken sausages because my husband has a specia diet. It was very tasty!!!
