  • Sorry, but this was terrible. I didn’t realise...

    Sorry, but this was terrible. I didn’t realise til the end of the recipe that we would end up with uncooked eggs (I’m pregnant, so then had to microwave my bowl of pasta and basically ended up with scrambled eggs for dinner instead) and cold cream. The recipe relies on the heat of the pasta to cook through, the cream and egg mix but it doesn’t even make it warm. A totally wasteful mess in our house. Never again.

  • Kids loved it but I puréed

    Kids loved it but I puréed the zucchini after so it was hidden as I have fussy eaters. Lovely but either more bacon or Parmesan to add a touch more flavour. But hit with the kids will do it again
