Carbonara

Another quick dinner – certainly not for those on a diet but every now and again can’t hurt – serve with French beans sugar snap peas or asparagus or a simple salad

Ingredients

  • 1 packet of smokey bacon, rind removed or a packet of rashers with rind removed and cubed.
  • Three egg yolks
  • Three eggs
  • 150g of parmesan cheese
  • 150mls of double cream
  • 500g of spaghetti

Method

Put the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water and cook according to the instructions. Beat the eggs and the egg yolks together in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. Meanwhile heat some olive oil in a pan and add the bacon lardons. Fry until crisp.

When the pasta is ready, drain but keep some of the cooking water. Add the cooked spaghetti to the egg mixture and mix quickly, then add the cream and cheese and add the bacon lardons and mix thoroughly. The hot pasta cooks the egg mixture.

Serve with a sprinkle of cheese and you side salad or vegetables!
