Dead Good Spaghetti Carbonara

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

A quick and yummy pasta that can be served as the main course or as a side dish. From the BBC website. I like that this sauce is not overloaded with butter and does not use olive oil. Instead, it highlights the bacon, onion and cheese flavors.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil a large pan of water and cook the pasta following the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat butter in a small frying pan and cook the onions, garlic and bacon for 5-7 minutes until golden.
  3. Beat together the eggs, cream, most of the parmesan and plenty of ground black pepper.
  4. Drain the spaghetti and return to the pan, off the heat.
  5. Add the onion and egg mixtures and toss together until the pasta is evenly coated.
  6. Serve with the rest of the parmesan sprinkled on top.
  7. Add black pepper and salt if desired.
