This smooth and indulgent dish is flooded with flavour and creaminess, perfect for a chilly autumn evening meal. The tagliatelle is a good source of complex carbohydrate which provides slow release energy, replacing that lost after a busy day. A rich carbohydrate meal is also thought to promote the production of the brain chemical serotonin, helping to make you feel relaxed and aid a restful night’s sleep. The use of the half fat crème fraiche keeps the fat content of the dish down without affecting the creamy texture. A little effort goes a long way – have this stroganoff from pan to plate in under half an hour!
