  • 1/3 cup Parsley

Method

  3. Mix eggs, cream and parmesan in a bowl.

  • I do love a delicious spaghetti carbonara! You can actually have it a little more authentic by removing the cream and using a little bit of the pasta water to add a bit of liquid.

  • My partner makes something similar to this but with tasty prosciutto fried instead of ham. We like a stronger flavour.

  • Good recipe but I’ll stick to using my regular bacon. I also like to add mushrooms and occasionally chicken
