    had a lovely dinner tonight so thought i'd share the recipe.

    Ingrediants:
    • pasta (any dried type)
    • quorn bacon (0.5 syns per pack)
    • garlic
    • onion
    • mushrooms
    • half vegetable stock cube made up with hot water (all stock is now free)
    • 85g low fat soft cheese (philly light - use as a B choice)
    • frylight
    • 42g cathedral city light (B choice)
    Instructions:
    1. Cook pasta and fry off the quorn bacon and mushrooms using frylight and set aside.
    2. fry garlic and onion in frylight for a few minutes then add the soft cheese and a small amount of stock - stir continuously. the cheese will melt into the stock to form a creamy sauce.
    3. Season to taste.
    4. add the mushrooms and quorn bacon to the sauce and combine with the drained pasta.
    5. top with grated :cheese:
    6. EAT!

    i imagine it's nicer with bacon but i'm vegetarian, which is why i used quorn bacon.

    hope you enjoyed your guilt free dinner :)

    Thanks for the recipe. Just worth noting that it would only be this syn value on the green plan.

    Philly Light is actually a HEB on green, that's why the syn value only applies to that plan. On EE you are right, you would need to syn it.
