Recipe by Mel Bedggood
A tasty alternative to the carbonara with no cream! Vary your mushrooms for a unique taste. I used Oyster and Shimeji mushrooms, but enoki, shitake or portobello would also work a treat.
- 112 g dry fettuccine pasta
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons light ricotta cheese
- 1 teaspoon vegetable stock powder
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic
- 1⁄2 red onion, diced
- 1 cup spinach leaves
- 4 slices vegetarian bacon
- 1 cup mushroom
Directions See How It's Made
- boil water and cook fettucine. drain and leave aside.
- add garlic and red onions to another pan. Cook until the onions have sweated through.
- add bacon and cook until brown, stirring occasionally.
- add mushrooms and place spinach on top. stir the ingredients until spinach has sweated down and mixed into the other ingredients. Add stock and pepper at the same time.
- Mix the cheese and egg in together roughly and stir into vegetables.
- Once mixture turns mushroom colour, add the fettucine and stir through.
- If you'd like a more cheesy taste, add some light mozzarella and mix through when hot.
