    Easy restaurant quality carbonara made in a flash. I am asked to make this again and again from both friends and family!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 8 rashers bacon
    • 450g fettuccine
    • 4 eggs
    • 1/2 cup (60g) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) cream
    • black pepper

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:22min 

    1. Trim bacon and cut into chunks. Fry in frypan over medium heat until crispy, remove and drain on a paper towel.
    2. Boil a large pot of water add a splash of olive oil and a pinch of salt and cook the fettuccine for 9-10 minutes, or till al dente. Drain and return to pot to keep warm.
    3. Beat the eggs, cheese and cream in a bowl, then add the bacon. Pour over the pasta in the pot and toss gently with tongs.
    4. Return the pan to a very low heat and cook for 1 - 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened - don't overheat or the eggs will scramble. Season well with black pepper and serve.
