    500g Spaghetti

    400g pack Smoked Back Bacon Rashers, chopped

    2 tbsp Olive Oil

    300g tin Sliced Mushrooms, drained

    1 tsp Dried Parsley

    75ml Double Cream

    50g Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, grated

    1 tbsp Malt Vinegar

    Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, season with salt and add the spaghetti and cook as per pack instructions.

    Meanwhile to make the sauce fry the bacon in a large frying pan in 1 tbsp olive oil until just cooked, (approx. 3 minutes).

    Then add the mushrooms and warm through, (approx. 2 minutes).

    Stir in the parsley, mustard, a pinch of black pepper and the double cream.

    When the spaghetti is cooked, drain and mix with the sauce and parmesan cheese.

    Serve a portion of the spaghetti with a poached egg on top.
