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!

  1. I’m sorry but it is an insult to call to this a carbonara! Replacing something as natural as cream with sugar laden fromage frais? And Primula instead of grana padano? Doesn’t that stuff come out of tubes? How can replacing wholesome ‘real’ food with processed crap ever be good for you? You need to learn about food nutrition instead of paying Slimming World.

    1. I’m sorry but… always a prelude to sound polite…but thanks for your comment!

      I actually no longer pay SW as I am a target member after losing almost 50 pounds, but thanks for your concern! 🙂
