Method

  1. Boil the pasta in a large saucepan of salted water until it softens.
  2. While it’s boiling, heat a large frying pan with oil on a high heat and add oil and butter, before scattering in the onion, bacon and mushrooms.
  3. Cook the ingredients for around five minutes, until the bacon browns off and the mushrooms are tender.
  4. Slowly add cream and bring to the boil, before simmering for a further two minutes until the sauce has slightly thickened.
  5. Add pasta and cheese to the pan and stir for a few minutes until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together.

You can also add salt and pepper, or other mixed herbs, for extra flavour depending on your taste.
