Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Finely chop garlic. Thinly slice pear (see ingredients) into wedges. In a medium bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, honey and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Little cooks: Take charge by helping combine the dressing in step 1, and the sauce in step 2!


Separate egg yolk from the egg white. In a second medium bowl, combine egg yolk, light cooking cream, chicken stock pot and shredded Cheddar cheese. Season with pepper, then whisk with a fork and set aside.

TIP: Using just egg yolk in this recipe makes the sauce thick and rich!


Cook fettuccine in the boiling water until 'al dente', 9 minutes. Reserve some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people), then drain pasta and return to pan.

Little cooks: Older kids can help add the pasta to the saucepan under adult supervision. Be careful, the water is boiling!


While pasta is cooking, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook diced bacon, breaking up with a spoon, until crisp, 5-6 minutes. Add sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add 1/2 the mixed leaves and cook until wilted slightly, 1 minute.


Reduce heat to medium. Add cooked fettuccine and the sauce mixture to the pan and cook, tossing, until pasta is coated and sauce is heated through, 2 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add a splash of the reserved pasta water. Season, then remove from heat.

TIP: If your frying pan isn't big enough, toss everything together in the saucepan!


Add pear and remaining mixed leaves to bowl with the dressing. Toss to combine. Divide bacon and cheese fettuccine between bowls. Serve with pear salad.

Little cooks: Add the finishing touch and help toss the salad!
