So I appreciate that the above picture looks a little like something my cat threw up but I took the photo in a rush because I was STARVING. I’m currently on a diet and this was practically the only thing I ate yesterday (despite it not being that diet friendly…everything in moderation is my philosophy). Plus – have you ever tried to make a plate of white mush look attractive? Let me tell you, it’s no easy task!
Anyhow, it matters not a jot what this looks like because it tastes flipping delicious.
The original recipe for this didn’t include bacon but everything tastes better with bacon right? Also, a dinner without some form of meat in it just isn’t a dinner for Mr M so I threw that in there to keep him happy.
All in all, while this looks a bit of a disaster, it wasn’t, so ner. It’s bit heavy on the butter and cream but if you like creamy garlicky mushroomy goodness – then you’ll like this!
Recipe serves 4.
Creamy Bacon & Garlic Mushroom Spaghetti

500g fresh mushrooms, sliced (I used chestnut)

I really wish I had some leafy salad to go with it too so next time I’ll do that!
