No Cream Vegetarian Carbonara

READY IN: 20mins
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.

Very, very good! This was an easy dish that really satisfied us. I added a little shredded Parmesan over the top and it was perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!!
