Nutritional info:

This creamy stroganoff is 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. Each serving contains only 14% of the GDA (Guideline Daily Amount) for fat.
