Spaghetti carbonara | Recipe (Slimming World friendly)

Pasta is a favourite dish in our house so I am really glad that I can eat as much of it as I like on Slimming World. Recently though it has been a case of finding pasta dishes other than bolognese, lasagna or a pasta bake. This spaghetti carbonara is delicious with the whole family enjoying it, and it’s even more enjoyable knowing it is only 1 syn per portion! It is even more perfect served up with a slice of garlic bread.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 6 lean rashers of bacon with all visible fat removed
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 4 eggs
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 4 tbsp fat free natural fromage frais
  • 25g Primula cheese with chives
  • 400g dried spaghetti
  • Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet, then drain well and return to the pan.
  • While the spaghetti is cooking, dry fry the bacon & garlic over a high heat for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  • Lightly beat the eggs, season, then stir in the fromage frais and the Primula cheese.
  • Add the bacon to the spaghetti and mix well over a low heat.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the egg mixture, tossing thoroughly so that the eggs thicken in the residual heat. This will make a sauce that coats the pasta.
  • Serve into bowls and scatter a little Parmesan over the top if desired, or season with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Enjoy!
