Penne pasta with mushrooms and sausage
A simple midweek meal that will entice even the finicky eater.

4 sausages, skins removed and discarded and the meat squeezed out into a bowl

4 bacon rashers, chopped roughly

200g mushrooms, chopped

350g penne pasta

50g parmesan, grated, plus extra shavings to serve

2 egg yolks

Small bunch parsley, finely chopped

2 tbsp half fat crème fraiche

In a large non-stick frying pan, cook the sausages for 8-10 minutes until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, then remove and set aside in a bowl.

Fry the bacon with the mushrooms in the same pan for 5-8 minutes until golden, return the sausage meat and reduce the heat to its lowest setting to keep warm, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta following the instructions.

Beat together the Parmesan, egg yolks, most of the parsley and the crème fraiche.

When the pasta is cooked, drain and reserve a ladleful of the cooking water.

Combine the pasta and meat mixture over a low heat and add the sauce.

Season and quickly mix through, adding a splash of the cooking water if it seems too thick.

Serve with the extra Parmesan shavings and remaining parsley on top.
