This dish is super speedy, thanks to quick-cook pasta... and a few other little nifty tricks! The creamy sauce is packed with flavour thanks to garlic paste, mushrooms (just tear 'em in!) and speedy pancetta lardons. Topped with plenty of grated cheese and fresh chives, this is one for all the family to enjoy!

Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, add the pancetta lardons and cook for 2 min
Add the quick cook spaghetti to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat
Cook the quick cook spaghetti for 3-4 min or until cooked with a slight bite
Once done, drain the quick cook spaghetti, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water
While the spaghetti is cooking, crumble the chestnut mushrooms into the pan
Add the roasted garlic paste and cook for 30 sec
Add the Chinese rice wine, soft cheese and a generous pinch of salt
Give everything a good mix up and cook for 2 min further
Meanwhile, snip the chives with scissors
Add the drained spaghetti to the pan with the sauce and give everything a good mix up
Cook for 30 sec further or until the sauce begins to stick to the pasta – this is your pancetta & mushroom alfredo
Tip: Add a splash of the starchy pasta water if your sauce is looking a little dry!
Set the pancetta & mushroom alfredo in the centre of the table, ready to share
Top with the grated Italian hard cheese and snipped chives
Season with a grind of black pepper and let everyone dig in
