From Lidl. 2 medium onions, 1/2 pack mushrooms/300gramme ham trimmings (100 gramme left for pea and ham soup) Other sources - 200 grammes (1/2 a pack) fresh tagliatelle, you can used dried or macaroni/penne. 350 gramme tub carbona, got it in Lidl before, Italian week? None this week. Chop as illustrated. Fry onion, when soft add mushrooms, meanwhile fill a large pan boiling/oiled /salted water cook pasta as directed on pack. Add carbonara sauce to vegetables when hot stir in ham trimmings. Drain pasta. Serve or mix together in the pan and serve, a few cherry tomatoes won't go adrift. If you have seen similar before tarantula is acting as my complaints advisor. @harryflatters@Tarantula@Stixxee
sounds good I've always fancied that but never got around to making it, tub of carbonara is a good idea to try out & then if I liked it I could have a little go at making my own.
Sounds good and looks good @Tombola we are very fond of that dish with tagliatelle. swmbo also does a wonderful languine dish with green pesto, cherry tomatoes, 1 shallot finely chopped, 3 finely chopped sweet pickled red peppers, finely diced chorizo and/or bacon with grated parmesan on top to finish - lovely!
To be honest its cheaper to buy ready made, unless you live in the back of beyond and only have McColl. But it can be frozen. @Nessie
Sounds like my kind of thing. Thanks for the recipe @Tombola
