Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. By the time the spaghetti is cooked, the sauce will be ready and you will be ready to eat!
  2. Chop pancetta (or bacon, procuitto) roughly
  3. Finely mince parsley to garnish with later.
  4. Pop some pre-made garlic bread in the oven under the broiler to serve with your meal, 6 mins to table!
  5. Add olive oil and garlic to non-stick pan and fry pancetta until tender-crisp.
  6. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt and pepper.
  7. This is where you have to work fast!
  8. Drain cooked spaghetti into colander and pour immediately back into hot pot, do NOT rinse!
  9. Cover to keep pasta hot, but do NOT put back over heat or you will end up with scrambled eggs, not a gourmet masterpiece guaranteed to impress!
  10. Quickly pour egg and cream mixture over pasta and stir to ensure sauce cooks without clumping.
  11. Add cook pancetta, fresh grated parmesan and top with parsley to serve.
