Spaghetti Carbonara

500g spaghetti
250g bacon, diced
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
3 large eggs
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup milk

Put a large pot of water on to boil (for pasta). In a large frypan, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 12 minutes; transfer to a paper towel or brown paper lined plate to drain. Salt boiling water generously; add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, Parmesan, and cream. Set aside. Drain pasta, leaving some water clinging to it. Working quickly, add hot pasta to egg mixture. Add bacon; season with salt and pepper, and toss all to combine (heat from pasta will cook eggs). Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional Parmesan cheese.


  1. I thought I left a comment before, but apparently something went wrong. I read your article on making body soap. Your recipe calls for Lux flakes. I am in the USA and it is not available here. Can you post a website link or name, address and phone number of where I may be able to order it from in your area?

  2. Ooh a plate of that for lunch right now would be great! It looks delish :)
