Recipe Ingredients for SPAG CARBONARA

400 g spaghetti
1 tbs olive oil
200 g sliced flat pancetta (see note), cut into 1cm-wide strips
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 eggs, plus 1 extra yolk
100 g Thickened Cream
2/3 cup (50g) freshly grated parmesan, plus extra to serve
2 tbs Italian Parsley

Recipe Directions for SPAG CARBONARA

  1. Cook pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions. Meanwhile, heat oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook pancetta, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until beginning to crisp. Add garlic for 30 seconds, then set pan aside.

  2. Place eggs, yolk, cream and parmesan in a bowl. Season, then mix gently with a fork. Drain pasta, then return to pan. Quickly add egg and pancetta mixtures and parsley. Toss to combine - the heat from the pasta will cook the egg slightly and form a creamy sauce. Serve immediately with extra parmesan.
