    This is the true version of carbonara - NO cream, NO onions, NO mushrooms, NO chicken or whatever so called Italian restaurants serve all over Ireland and UK.

    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

    A very cheap and filling meal and very easy to make. Ideal for during the week for the family. Got the ingredients from the back of a ready meal and made it up along the cooking process. Versatile as ingredients can be added or taken away, i.e. garlic, chopped peppers, etc.
