  • If you want to add some extra protein, you could grill some chicken, chop it up and stir it in to the finished sauce.
  • Add some extra greens by stirring in some spinach a couple of minutes before the sauce is cooked.
  • A little bit of truffle oil drizzled over the finished dish adds loads of extra flavour and makes it a bit more special.

  • Use a variety of mushrooms to add plenty of different textures and flavours.
  • This dish is best made from fresh as the sauce can separate when defrosted and reheated.
