SOOOO fed up of not getting the Carbonara RIGHT in Italian Restaurants i make it to this recipe, it really annoys me when i gear up for a creamy and RICH pasta and get some packet slop, ive sent it back many times, probably to the "chefs" horror but SORRY he obviously had NO TASTE BUDS UGH!!!!

  • 1 Tbsp Butter

  • 1 tbsp Garlic

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 small onion shredded

  • 300ml Pure Cream

    Add bacon, onion and garlic and cook well till fairly browned

  • 3.

    Add some salt at this stage, 2 pinches.

    In a bowl mix the cream the eggs and the parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder pepper (pinch) and a little more salt set aside....

  • 5.

    Cook your pasta in boiling water then drain and toss through a knob of butter
