Quick 'n' Easy Carbonara

Quick 'n' Easy Carbonara
Cooking Time:
30 minutes
Serves: 4-6
Carbonara’s a classic! It’s a real quicky to make, and it’s packed with savoury flavour that won’t cost an arm ‘n’ a leg!

  1. Cook pasta according to packet directions. While pasta is cooking make the sauce. Heat a medium saucepan or frying pan and squeeze the sausage meat from the sausage casings. Discard the casings and fry the sausage meat, crumbling it as it cooks. If using bacon, chop and sauté in a drop of oil if you need it. Add the crushed garlic and when soft set the pan aside.
  2. Beat eggs and egg yolks together and stir in the parmesan. When pasta is cooked, drain, reserving a half cup of the pasta cooking water.
  3. Pour drained pasta into the pan with cooked sausage or bacon. Add the egg mixture and enough of the hot pasta water to create a creamy sauce.
  4. Stir gently until the pasta is coated, taking care not to scramble the eggs.
  5. Stir in the chopped parsley and serve.

Brownie's Top Tip:

For a gluten-free meal, replace spaghetti or fettucine with a gluten free variety.
