Fusion Carbonara  Recipe

Prep and cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves 2

175g/6oz Dried Pasta (shortcut or long)

50g/2oz Cheddar Cheese, finely grated

1 Egg Yolk

120ml/4fl.oz. Double Cream

1 tbsp Olive Oil

4 rashers Streaky Bacon, chopped

a medium Onion, finely chopped

1 Garlic Clove, crushed

Salt and Black Pepper


1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add plenty of salt, add the pasta, stir well, then reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes.


2. Meanwhile, place the cheese, egg yolk, cream, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Set aside.


3.  Heat the olive oil in a medium sized frying pan until hot, add the bacon and fry over a medium heat for 1 minute, turning.


4. Add the onion and continue to fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, then add the garlic and continue to fry, stirring, for a further 2 minutes.


5. Once the pasta has cooked, drain well in a colander then return to the pan and stir in the hot bacon mixture.


6. Immediately add the cheese and cream mixture to the hot pasta mixture and mix well. There's not need to have any heat under the pan as the heat of the pasta will cook the sauce.


Serve immediately.
