The perfect vegetarian comfort food for winter: a cheesy, creamy pasta dish from top chef Silvana Franco


  • 350g/12 oz tagliatelle
  • A knob of butter
  • 15ml/1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 (250g) packs chestnut mushrooms, quartered
  • 4 large, free range eggs
  • 1 (300ml) carton single cream (or 1(300ml) carton of half fat cream for a slimmer option)
  • 75g/3 oz Parmesan, freshly grated
  • 45ml/3 tbsp chopped fresh chives


  • Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water for about 10 mins or according to packet instructions, until ‘al dente’.

  • Heat the butter and oil together in a large frying pan then sizzle the garlic for 30 secs, before adding the mushrooms. Cook over a high heat for 6-8 mins, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are nicely browned. Remove from the heat and season to taste.

  • Lightly beat together the eggs and cream, stir in the Parmesan and seasoning.

  • Drain the pasta in a colander, return to the pan, and stir in the egg mixture, garlic mushrooms and chives and toss together well. The heat from the pasta will lightly thicken the sauce.

  • Divide between two bowls and serve with Parmesan if liked.
