Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe

Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe

I Finally found a recipe for a spaghetti carbonara which came out lovely! Not to blow my own trumpet, but it wasn’t far off my favourite at Frankie and Bennies.

I’d give this recipe an overall rating of 5 stars!

Difficulty: Easy Peasy!
Time to make: Hardly anything! 15 mins at most!
Taste: Beautiful!
Serves: 1 (double ingredients for 2)


  • 15ml olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves – crushed

  • 100g bacon - chopped (I used smoked as I prefer it but unsmoked is fine)

  • 1 medium egg – whisked

  • 2 tablespoons cheese – grated

  • 125ml double cream

  • 15ml milk (I used green milk)


  1. Cook your pasta

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, adding the garlic and bacon. Cook on medium for 5 minutes.

  3. Mix the egg, bacon, cheese, cream, and milk.

  4. When your pasta is ready, drain it and put into the frying pan. Add the mixture and gently heat for a minute on a low/medium heat (don’t have your heat high otherwise your egg will scramble!)

  5. Wait until you are happy with consistency.

  6. Serve! (hot preferably, haha!)

You may find if you have a small amount of pasta you might want to accompany the meal with garlic bread too! Hopefully you think ‘the one I made earlier’ looks as appetising as it tasted.

Bone ape the teeth ;)
