Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 rashers bacon fat removed and chopped small
  • 250 g chestnut mushrooms sliced
  • 75 ml chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp half-fat creme fraiche
  • large handful parsley finely chopped
  • 300 g tagliatelle
  • freshly ground salt and pepper
  • low calorie cooking spray

Instructions

  • Put the bacon into a preheated frying pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray, and sizzle for a couple of minutes
  • Add the crushed garlic, and stir fry for 1 minute
  • add the mushrooms and stir fry for another couple of minutes
  • Put the linguine on to cook (usually takes around 8 minutes)
  • Stir fry the mushroom mixture for 2 more minutes and then add in the chicken stock, and season with salt and pepper. Leave on a low heat, at no more than a gentle simmer.
  • Just before your linguine is ready, stir the creme fraiche through the mushroom and bacon sauce, keep stirring on the heat for a minute or so. You can add a little extra stock if it seems too dry.
  • When the linguine is cooked, stir it through the sauce and serve, sprinkled with the fresh, chopped parsley and extra pepper

Notes

Parmesan over the top of this is lovely!
