Spaghetti carbonara – Authentic recipe –

Cheap, filling, comforting, easy – what’s not to love about spaghetti carbonara? Watch how to make a delicious carbonara recipe that’s simple enough for a Tuesday night, yet impressive enough for a laid back dinner party.

No cream here! This authentic carbonara calls for only eggs and lots of Parmesan cheese. Use bacon, pancetta or lardons – whatever you have to hand. The fresh peas are totally optional, offering a bit of colour and fresh flavour to the dish. Toss in some frozen garden peas with the pasta while it’s boiling if fresh peas are out of season.
