Spaghetti Carbonara

You know how everyone always talks about how they have store cupboard recipes? Well this is definitely one of ours. It’s one of our favourite – last minute, use up all the leftovers, I’m starving now – meals. We were just in Portugal last week with some friends and this was definitely on the menu. Something quick, easy and delicious to make, allowing us to bask in the sun for as long as possible!

You will need:
500g Spaghetti
Bacon Lardons
4 eggs
Grated cheese – any kind is fine. We tend to use a mix of parmesan, emmental or cheddar – basically whatever is in the fridge.

Cook the spaghetti as per the instructions. Whilst that’s cooking heat some oil and fry the lardons until crispy.
Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the cheese, mixing together.
Drain the pasta, put back in the pan and add the egg/cheese mix and the lardons to it. Mix together quickly so that the pasta cooks the egg mixture.
Serve with a sprinkling of parmesan and a salad (and some wine!)
This will serve 4-6 people depending on how hungry everyone is. I’ve left the amount of lardons and the amount of cheese unspecified on purpose as it really is personal preference. I love lots of bacon, but Fi, not so much. We also like to add mushrooms too (if we have them that is)!
