Sunday tea- spaghetti alla carbonara

Shiitake (yes that's for you downie) closed cup and chestnut mushrooms, smoked bacon lardons (or lard-ons as Adrian likes to call them- yes very mature) with spaghetti and muchos Parmesan.

Chop up the mushroom and bacon, grate the Parmesan

Sautéed with garlic

Cook pasta for 9 minutes. A la dente

Add the pasta to the bacon and mushroom, add in the Parmesan, (supposed to be pecorino, but hey, a waitrose hasn't opened in mile end and I don't think tesc express has quite the fromage selection) add 3 beaten eggs, a splash of white wine, season and serve.

Result- delish but maybe not needed after marmite and cheese on toast, nandos and chocolate.
Note to self: project rexy must get back on track tomoza.
