Classic Carbonara

The perfect quick & easy carbonara recipe for one


2/3 strips smokey bacon

60g spaghetti

1 onion

1 garlic clove

1 large egg

As much parmesan/cheddar cheeeeese as you like


Chop the bacon, onion and garlic.

Place the spaghetti in a saucepan and cover it with just-boiled water. Adding a dash of oil will prevent it from sticking together too much. Cook for 8-10 mins.

While the spaghetti is cooking, fry the bacon in a separate pan over a medium heat. Once the bacon is lightly cooked, add the onions and garlic - Fry until browned.

When the spaghetti is finished cooking, drain the water in a sink and place back into the saucepan.

Add the bacon, onion and garlic to the spaghetti (drain the excess fat/oil).

Whisk the egg and add to the spaghetti. Keep turning the spaghetti and bacon until the egg is mixed in well and has thickened slightly.

Add the cheese & season with salt/pepper.

Quick tip: Separate the packet of bacon into sets of 2/3 rashers and freeze for a hungover fry-up or your next batch of carbonara!
