  • Hmm I’m 14 weeks pregnant…if the ham is heated through a dish like this, I wonder if that’s safe or if I should avoid it altogether for now…it looks like such a delicious dish though! Maybe cooked bacon may be a good alternative :)

  • We love Carbonara in our house, it’s my teen son’s favourite. It is one of the more fattening pasta sauces to eat, so I use light cream and light ham. Still great flavour.
