Directions:

1

In a bowl mix together the egg yolks, Parmesan and black pepper and then set aside.

2

Fry the garlic and lardons / pancetta together in a tiny but of olive oil and boil the pasta according to the packet's instructions. You want the pasta to be al dente and this took about 8 minutes for me.

3

When the pasta is ready, drain but keep aside some of the cooking water - around two cups worth.

4

Mix the pasta in with the lardons and garlic.

5

Add some cooking water and make sure you give it a really good stir. Then remove from the heat.

6

Finally mix in the yolk and cheese mix and some more cooking water if necessary - I definitely needed some to loosen the sauce up a bit.

7

Serve with a grating of Parmesan and a twist of black pepper.

I have to say I really enjoyed this - totally different to Pascal's Pasta Carbonara but I thought just as good as it is obviously less creamy. Arabella preferred Pascal's recipe however she still managed to wipe her plate clean as did I. I also liked the way the egg was cooked more as I sometimes do worry about the possible side effects of raw egg…..not that it has ever actually stopped me eating it!

Now time to collapse on the sofa and finish Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone :-)

As I have mentioned several times, my daughter Arabella's favourite meal is carbonara and so when I asked what she wanted for supper last week, I was not surprised that the answer was......carbonara. I decided to cook this recipe from Fay Ripley's original cookbook - it is my favourite book and as it is baby friendly I expect I will be using it a lot more regularly in the future. This ..

A lighter version of Carbonara. All the flavor you love without the heavy cream.
