I am a total pasta fiend. When I started Slimming World I wasn’t sure how I was going to survive without some of my favourite dishes. Thankfully, I’ve managed to come up with adaptations for all of them, which haven’t compromised on the taste!
This creamy Low Syn Creamy Pasta with Bacon, Peas and Mushrooms uses Lightest Philadelphia. This is only half of your Healthy Extra A! The parmesan has been synned for arguments sake, but really this can also be included as part of your Healthy Extra A.
Some people might think adding peas to pasta is a bit odd, but they really add so much flavour. With loads of mushrooms, this is full of speed food – if you wanted to add extra, serve with a leafy salad. A spray of balsamic vinegar on the salad would cut through the richness of the pasta really well.
For a vegetarian alternative to this Low Syn Creamy Pasta with Bacon, Peas and Mushrooms, replace the bacon with Quorn, or some Healthy Extra B nuts. Just make sure you season well as the bacon adds a saltiness.
