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
1

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

2

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

3

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.

4

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.

5

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

6

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.

7

Serve immediately, sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.
