Pasta Carbonara Plus

This is a variation on the traditional carbonara sauce. We think it is richer and more filling, a firm favourite amongst our friends one of whom gave us the recipe.


Put the water for the pasta on to boil. Add a teaspoon of olive oil to stop the pasta sticking. Meanwhile chop the garlic, bacon and mushrooms. Put the pasta on to boil. Fry the garlic and bacon in about two tablespoons of olive oil. Add the thyme. This is one of the all time great smells of the kitchen. When the bacon is cooked add the mushrooms and cook gently until the juices start to ooze. Put in the tub of cream and the black pepper.

Drain the pasta and tip into a large sauce pan. Add the cream sauce and stir. Quickly pour in the egg yolks and stir briefly over a low heat to cook the eggs and thicken the sauce. Not too high or you will have scrambled eggs.

Serve with garlic bread, Yum !
