    Ribbons of pasta coated in bacon, eggs and cream make a warming supper dish, with less than half the fat of other versions of this popular Italian dish.

    A carbonara that, officially, isn't really a carbonara? Who cares? It tastes good, is slightly healthier than most carbonara recipes, and goes down a treat every time! Once again I am no use at measurements, so a lot of it is to personal taste, however I will do my best to give you a rough guide :)

    Super easy carbonara, 10 mins cooking time, yummy dish. To make this recipe less fattening you can use light single cream and low fat ham instead of bacon. Serves two people, increase the pasta amount for additional people

    This spaghetti carbonara recipe is such an easy and simple meal to cook when we are in a hurry during the week. I quite often have dinner ready in the evening by having prepared bits and pieces before Skint Mum gets in, or by cooking in the slow cooker earlier in the day. Not every evening is like this though as we can have nights of utter mayhem where we don't know how we'll fit everything in before bed time. Bring forward the spaghetti carbonara. With only a few ingredients, we can have dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes, and it works out lot cheaper than buying a jar of sauce.

    This is one dish my kids absolutely love! It might not be completely authentic but it's quick and easy and you can get away with using any kind of pasta.

    It takes only 6 ingredients to make this delicious Italian pasta dish. Streaky bacon is tossed with fettuccine, eggs, Parmesan, double cream and black pepper. Perfect for lunch or dinner.

    This is a flavourful but lower fat carbonara sauce for serving on pasta. It uses the Slimming World® method.

    Stay true to the classic Italian version of spaghetti alla carbonara which simply uses 4 key ingredients: egg yolks, Pecorino cheese, smoked bacon and spaghetti.

    This recipe for carbonara contains no cream, I don't think it is needed. I ate this in a little restaurant in Rome and have finally succeeded in creating my own version. I hope you like it.
