Eggs-Actly what was Called for – Homemade Spaghetti Carbonara

Youngest has popped home for a couple of days for washing and feeding mainly 🙄

Its slightly thrown my meal planning out, but as we have a fair stock of basics it is not a huge issue.  We have pasta, eggs, cheese, bacon….


He has requested Spaghetti Carbonara, which happens to be one of Hubby’s specialities, so no cooking for me 🤗


He starts by adding spaghetti to boiling salted water, this cooks till soft, but slightly el dente.


In a shallow pan add some chopped garlic and bacon, we prefer smoked streaky, but whatever takes your fancy is fine.  You can use lardons, sliced gammon, pancetta or ham it’s a great use up dish 👍



Into a separate bowl add 70g of grated Paramasan, 2 whole eggs, and about 50-70 ml  of double cream with a pinch of salt and pepper to season and mix together till blended.



Drain the cooked pasta and add to the pan, swiftly followed by your egg mixture and bacon – stir through till the pasta is coated and the egg mix has formed a rich Creamy sauce.


Serve immediately with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan  😉

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
