  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 250 g (9 ounces) bacon slices

  • 40 g (1 1/2 ounces) butter
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

  5. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the drained noodles, and toss over very gentle heat, to heat through.
  6. Stir the cream and egg mixture into the noodles, and toss quickly until they are well coated and the ingredients well mixed. Stir in the mushrooms.
  7. Turn the noodles into a warmed serving dish. Scatter the bacon, the remaining parsley and Parmesan, if using, on top. Serve at once.
