Fettucini Carbonara

Fettucini Carbonara

I’d say Fettucini Carbonara is one of those classic flavours but I love it as its so quick to make and a nice and cheap weekday family meal.

Ingredients:

  • 500g fettuccini pasta
  • 250g pasture fed bacon, thinly sliced
  • 300g mushrooms, sliced
  • 120g spring onions (save a couple of sprigs for serving)
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup Parmesan, grated
  • 360ml coconut milk
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup, cornflour
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  • Cook pasta according to instructions.
  • Heat 1 tsp oil in a frypan and add bacon and cook until crispy.  Add mushrooms, spring onions and garlic and saute until onions are soft.  Set aside.
  • Mix 3/4 cup Parmesan with coconut milk in a jug.
  • Drain pasta once cooked and return to saucepan.  Add beaten egg and mix, then add coconut milk mixture and mix until all combined.
  • Sprinkle cornflour over pasta and stir over low heat until it starts to thicken.  Add in bacon mixture and spinach and stir gently.
  • Serve with remaining Parmesan and spring onions sprinkled on top.

The kids are going to want you to serve this with some crispy garlic bread but I suggest adding a side of green beans.  Even if they eat them with their fingers!
