Fettuccine Carbonara

Time: 35 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 slices bacon, fat removed and chopped into chunks (the smokey variety is tastier)
  • 600 ml light cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, the shredded variety
  • 1 teaspoon salt, I usually add a little more
  • pepper
  • 500 g fettuccine pasta
  • 1 teaspoon oil, for boiling pasta
  • 1 teaspoon salt, for boiling pasta
  • parmesan cheese, extra

Directions

  • 1 Place water in a large saucepan with a little oil and salt.
  • 2 Bring to the boil and add fettucine.
  • 3 Stir for a few minutes to prevent fettucine from sticking together.
  • 4 Meanwhile, heat oil in a saucepan and gently cook onion, garlic and bacon on medium heat until onion becomes soft being careful not to burn.
  • 5 In a bowl beat the eggs.
  • 6 Pour in cream and whisk together.
  • 7 Add salt and pepper and mix well.
  • 8 Transfer cream mixture into saucepan (off the heat) with onion, garlic and bacon and stir quickly to combine.
  • 9 When pasta is cooked, drain into a large serving bowl and stir in the carbonara sauce and combine well.
  • 10 The heat of the pasta will cook the sauce and thicken.
  • 11 Serve immediately with some extra parmesan cheese.
