Spaghetti Carbonara

Creamy, cheesy, pasta sauce with ham, onions and garlic

Notes

It's essential to cook the pasta in salted boiling water, but refrain from adding any additional salt as the ham, bacon or speck is salty enough. Once the dish is ready to serve, taste and adjust seasoning to suit your palate.

Optional extras: My son has been a huge fan of Carbonara since he was about 6. Over the years he has experimented (with us as guinea pigs) various adaptations of his favourite meal: omit ham and substitute 2 cups pan fried chicken breast, add to either ham or chicken carbonara: 200g semi dried tomatoes, cubed raw avocado

Rob loves a good Carbonara - the onion addition is something he's going to love!
