Melt the butter in a deep saucepan. Add the beef strips and flour and cook for a few minutes to brown the beef. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Drizzle some olive oil in the same pan and fry the onion gently over a low heat for about 5 minutes to soften. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook gently for 10 minutes until the mushrooms have softened and are golden.

Add the beef stock and cream and season with salt and pepper. Leave to simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce has thickened. While the sauce is simmering cook the tagliatelle as per the packet instructions.

Stir the beef and parsley into the sauce. Check the seasoning, then remove from the heat. Pile the cooked tagliatelle onto heated plates and spoon the beef on top. Top with fresh parsley and serve immediately.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
