Fettucine with mushrooms & cream

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 small Onion; finely sliced
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 teaspoon Dried mixed herbs
100 grams Mushrooms, sliced
5 tablespoons Single cream
175 grams Fettucine cooked 'al dente'
1 Egg; beaten
Salt and pepper
Grated Parmesan to garnish

Classic Mediterranean food, a creamy mushroom sauce is folded into freshly cooked fettucine, and an egg lightly scrambled into the mixture at the last moment until it is lightly set. Serve this with a garlicky green salad and some warm granary bread.

Simmer the sliced onion gently in the oil until thoroughly softened, then add the herbs and let them soften too, stirring. Add the mushrooms and stir them until their juices start to run. Stir the cream into the mixture and heat through. Pour the sauce over the hot, drained fettucine in a saucepan, and put over a very gentle heat.

Finally add the beaten egg and cook slowly, stirring, until the egg begins to set. Check the seasoning and serve at once on warm plates.

Sprinkle grated Parmesan over the top.
