Yields4 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time8 minsTotal Time18 mins

Spaghetti carbonara (or pasta carbonara) – simple, filling and perfect to toss together for a quick mid-day lunch.

 75 g parmesan cheese
 3 eggs
 salt and freshly ground black pepper
 150 g smoked bacon, sliced into small squares
 1 tbsp olive oil
 1 clove garlic, halved
 350 g fresh spaghetti

Using the High Speed Slicer on the Chef XL Titanium fitted with the fine shredding plate, finely grate the Parmesan cheese.


Beat the eggs together with a fork then mix in the cheese and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.


Cut bacon into thin strips. Heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the bacon and garlic for 4-5 minutes, or until the bacon starts to brown. Remove from the heat and discard the garlic.


Meanwhile, place your spaghetti in a pan of boiling lightly salted water and cook for 2-3 minutes, if fresh, until al dente. Allow 6-8 minutes if you have dried the pasta.


Drain the pasta but reserve one cup of the pasta cooking water.


Add the bacon and egg mixture. Toss well to cook the eggs until they are creamy. Add a little bit of pasta water to loosen the mixture as necessary.


Serve immediately, sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.
