    Hayley_11's Note:

    This is pretty much the quickest pasta dish I know how to make, plus it only uses one pot so there is little washing up to do. Really full of flavour, but it doesn't reheat all that well (it still tastes alright but isn't as good as fresh!), so it's best served immediately. If you would like to make it a chicken carbonara add 500g of chicken, cut into 3cm pieces, to the pan when you cook the bacon.
