Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Spaghetti alla Carbonara


A great pasta dish, loved by kids and adults. I use a gluten free spaghetti for this so that I can enjoy it too!

At the moment I am using a corn pasta, Pasta d’oro by Sam Mills, available at some Coles.

This is quite a forgiving gluten free pasta, it holds it’s shape well and doesn’t go to mush quite as quickly as some of the others available.


500g spaghetti

300g bacon, diced

100g Parmesan, finely grated

1 egg, beaten

4 egg yolks, beaten

100mls cream

150mls milk

Salt and freshly ground pepper


Cook the pasta as per packet instructions.

In a large non stick frying pan cook the bacon until crispy, turn the heat off.

Combine egg, yolks, cream, milk and 80g Parmesan in a jug.

Once the pasta is cooked remove 250mls, 1 cup of cooking liquid and add to the bacon pan.

Put a low heat under the bacon pan, just enough to warm the pan, not to scramble the eggs!

Drain the pasta and add to the bacon pan.

Pour the egg mixture into the bacon pan, stir through well. Season with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle reserved Parmesan over the top and serve.
