Spaghetti Carbonara

We liked this one so much we thought we would share it with you; ideal mix of carbs, protein and fat. Taken from Men’s Healthmagazine January/February; recipe by Richard Bertinet, author of Cook in a Class of your Own.

Ingredients

250gms of Helen Browning’s organic bacon

500gms spaghetti pasta

8 egg yolks

100gms Parmesan grated

Heavy cream

Method
Step 1

Cook the spaghetti as per instructions on the pack; spin it around with a fork to ensure it doesn’t stick together

Step 2

Mix the egg yolks, cream and Parmesan in a bowl.

Step 3

Chop the bacon and fry it until crispy, then drain it on kitchen paper.

Step 4

When the pasta is cooked, drain it and return to the pan.

Step 5

Set the pan to a low heat, add the crispy bacon and egg mixture and toss for 30 seconds or so.

Step 6

The residual heat from the bacon and pasta will cook the eggs – just keep your tossing time to a minimum so they don’t scramble.

Clive gives us a twitchers update on all the comings and going on the farm.

"The rookeries in the ash trees around the farm have been active since late February/early March and the early-nesting rooks will now be sitting on eggs. For most of the other birds the lengthening days and increased hours of sunlight are the trigger to pair up and start breeding ...
