Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe

This is winter comfort food at it’s best.

Serves 4


  • Packet of pasta

  • Glug of olive oil

  • Fresh parsley sprig

  • 75ml double cream

  • Fresh nutmeg

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4 rashers of bacon

  • 4 eggs

  • Knob of butter

  • 75g parmesan

  • 50ml white wine


  1. Get a pan of salted water onto boil. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a little oil until nicely crispy, when cooked, splash in the wine and let it boil away until only a little is left.

  2. Beat the eggs, cream, parmesan and salt and pepper together until mixed.

  3. Once the pasta is cooked, add it into the pan with the bacon mixture (note– you will need to cook the bacon in a big enough pan to allow this) and pour the cream over.

  4. Toss the pasta and sauce together, grate the nutmeg, more black pepper and top with chopped parsley and a knob of butter.
