Easy-Peasy (not really) Carbonara

This lovely, creamy, scrumptious Carbonara is the ultimate comfort food. If you’re making this for pregnant ladies, or the under 1s remember to cook the eggs thoroughly when you add them. Otherwise, you can leave them rich and unctuous.

Serves 2 adults

Ingredients

180g pasta

4 rashers of bacon snipped into bits

2 eggs

100g grated cheese

4 tblsps olive oil

Pepper

Method

1) Cook the pasta as per packet instructions. Whilst the pasta is cooking, fry the bacon until browned and crispy, then drain on kitchen paper.

2)Lightly beat the eggs with the olive oil and a pinch of pepper. Stir in the grated cheese.

3)Drain the pasta and return to the pan. Stir in the bacon.

4)Pour the egg mixture over the pasta, and cook stirring over a low heat until rich and creamy. Serve with a crispy salad.
