Ingredients:

250g (8oz) fresh tagliatelle (or 150g (6oz) dried)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 small onion, peeled and finely sliced

100g (4oz) streaky bacon

4 stalks celery, finely chopped

100g (4oz) flat open mushrooms, chopped

1 glass red wine

2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed

salt and pepper

2 tbsps grated Parmesan cheese

Method:

Cut the bacon into small pieces. In a frying-pan, heat the oil and fry the bacon and onion for a couple of minutes over high heat. Reduce to medium and add the garlic and celery. Continue to fry for 5 minutes, stirring well.

Add the red wine and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, mix well and cover the pan. Turn the heat to low and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water until just tender, then drain well.

Return to the pan and pour over the sauce, mixing together gently. Serve hot garnished with grated Parmesan.

Plenty for four people as a starter or 2-3 as main course.
