Creamy Pasta Carbonara 

Creamy Pasta Carbonara is very easy to make and even the pickiest of people will be coming back for more! For a lower fat version, try using Skim Evaporated Milk (the milk in the can) – gives it a nice creamy texture without the huge fat content.

Greek Yoghurt is another really great substitute to use instead of the cream.

Method

  1. Cook pasta according to the directions on the packet.

  2. Drain and set aside.

  3. In a frypan, add the diced bacon and fry lightly.

  4. Beat together the eggs, cream and half the cheese.

  5. Add the drained pasta and stir well without breaking the pasta on low heat.

  6. Allow the eggs to scramble very softly to a creamy consistency.

  7. Season and serve on a large plate - garnish with remaining cheese and parsley.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Pasta Carbonara is not suitable to freeze.
