My 12-year-old daughter, who normally detests mushrooms and adores traditional carbonara pasta in all its eggy, cheesy glory, loves this version. Enough said.


For the Shiitake Bacon

  • sea salt flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 8


Heat the oven to 170°C (325°F/Gas 3). Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine all the bacon ingredients except the mushrooms in a mixing bowl. Add the mushrooms and toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer on the prepared baking tray and
