This is an excellent recipe for an intimate dinner for 4. Serve with salad and wine.
- Ready In:
- 5 eggs

- 1⁄2 lb sliced button mushrooms or 1/2 lb porcinni mushroom
- 1⁄2 cup light cream
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Heat a large pot of salted water on high and begin to cook pasta if it's dry.
- If it's fresh wait until after youve prepared the sauce as it will only take 3 minutes to cook.

- Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the butter.
- Saute the garlic and mushrooms for 3-4 minutes.

Sensational recipe. I made using wide fettuccine noodles and only four eggs, because they were extra large. Earlier in the day, I cooked some chopped chorizo for another recipe, so I added about 4 ounces of the leftover sausage to the pasta along with the egg mixture. Had a good laugh at your comment about Not that Kraft stuff. I hand-grated a nice Parmesan, which is the only honourable thing to do it.
Wonderful change from the normal carbonaras I have had in the past!! I had some leftover cooked fettuccine in my refrigerator from a previous recipe that I made too much of the pasta, so very quick to make lunch today. Other then scaling this way back to serve one (using one egg), after I took the photo, I added cooked bacon crumbles. Thanks for sharing a fun new twist, which I much prefer the mushrooms over the normal peas, that I will make again. Made for CQ 2014.
