& Crisp Summer Salad

Cooking time

20 minutes




770 /serving

Most poets write sonnets about unrequited love, but for us, there is no subject more deserving of an ode than a creamy mushroom carbonara, especially when made with silky fresh tagliatelle. Traditionally made with pancetta, this version features meaty cremini mushrooms, giving the pasta an earthy heartiness and letting the subtle richness of the egg sauce shine. Throw in a handful of sweet green peas for colour and texture, along with a good dusting of beautifully aged Grana Padano cheese, and you have yourself your new favourite weeknight dinner. Serve with a simple crisp salad on the side.

Start the carbonara
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. In a large high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, until deeply browned; season with S&P. Add the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant.

Make the egg mixture
While the mushrooms cook, in a medium bowl, whisk the heavy cream, ½ the cheese and 1 egg (double for 4 portions); season and S&P to taste.

Cook the pasta
Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, 1 to 3 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving ½ cup of the cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Make the salad
While the pasta cooks, roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, cabbage and ½ the parsley. Drizzle with as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like; season with S&P to taste.

Finish the carbonara
To the pot of mushrooms, add the cooked pasta and peas. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until combined. Off the heat, add the egg mixture and mix thoroughly until the pasta is coated with the sauce (if the sauce seems dry, gradually add the reserved cooking water to achieve your desired consistency); season with S&P to taste.
