Tagliatelle Carbonara

This is the kind of pasta dish that absolutely hits the spot. Halve the ingredients to serve as a starter. Double the ingredients if you've had a bad day.

  • 100g smoked bacon lardons

  • 200g Parmesan cheese

  • 100ml double cream

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

  • ½ glass white wine


  • 1.

    Bring a large pot of water to the boil and cook the tagliatelle according to packet instructions. When it has cooked, cover and keep warm.

  • 2.

    In a bowl, grate half the Parmesan, add the cream and egg yolk and the garlic and combine thoroughly.

  • 3.

    In a heavy frying pan, cook the bacon lardons until brown. De-glaze the pan with the wine then add the cooked pasta and carbonara sauce. Cook through for about 15 seconds and serve with the remainder of the parmesan.
