1 serving Cubed Pancetta
1.2 cup Frozen Green Peas
1 large Egg, Whole
330 cal Double Cream
2 fl oz Milk

Recipe Directions for Pasta Carbonara

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the pasta, and cook according to the packet instructions. Whisk the egg in a bowl with the cream, salt and pepper. Put your pancetta into a second pan and cook until crispy and golden.

  2. When the pasta is nearly cooked, add the peas for the last minute and a half. When cooked, drain in a colander, saving a little of the cooking water. Add the pasta to the pancetta.
