Spaghetti carbonara is one of the easiest pasta dishes to make and requires very little cooking. You can use low-fat cream and cut back on the cheese, but we say enjoy it in its full glory!
Cook the garlic in butter and oil until golden brown then discard the garlic. Add the bacon to the oil mix and sauté until crisp.
Meanwhile bring plenty of salted water to the boil and cook the spaghetti until tender, but with a little bite.
Mix together the eggs, mascarpone, parmesan and parsley.
Drain the spaghetti and tip into a warm serving bowl.
Immediately add the egg mixture and toss rapidly. Add the contents of the bacon pan and toss again. Season to taste.
