Step 1

Cook pasta in a stockpot of boiling salted water until tender and then drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking liquid and cover to keep warm.

Step 2

Heat oil in same stockpot over a medium to high heat and add mushrooms, bacon and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes or until mushrooms are soft and then add the sprouts and stir occasionally, for a further 6 to 7 minutes, or until sprouts are just tender.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium and add the sauce, pasta and reserved cooking liquid and season with salt and pepper and stir until hot and serve with parmesan (if like my DH you do not like parmesan use a finely grated aged sharp cheddar).
