Method

Step 1

Preparation: Boil the kettle. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Veggie noodles: Place a pot on medium-high heat and pour in the boiling water. Add the veggie noodles and cook for 1-2 minutes until hot. Drain in a colander, reserving some of the water, and drizzle with a little olive oil to keep the noodles from sticking together.

Step 3

Bacon bits: Place a pan on medium-high heat and when hot, add the bacon. Cook for 8-10 minutes until golden and crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 4

Mushroom & courgette mix: Using the same pan, add a knob of butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Let the butter melt, then add the onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes. Add the garlic, cook for 30 seconds, then add the mushrooms. Turn the heat up to high and cook for 5 minutes until lightly golden and cooked. Add the courgettes and cook for 5 minutes until lightly golden. Turn the heat down to medium-high, pour in the cream and cook for 1 minute. Mix through HALF the bacon and HALF the hard cheese. If necessary, loosen the sauce with a splash of the noodle water. Add the noodles, mix through the sauce and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Serve the noodles topped with the REST of the hard cheese and the REST of the bacon. Sprinkle over parsley and add a crack of black pepper.
