Spaghetti Carbonara Slimming World Style & Syn Free on EE

slimming world spaghetti carbonaraSpaghetti Carbonara is delicious and is one of my favorite dishes when I go to somewhere like Ask or Preso’s, It is usually made with cream so this is a very healthy alternative and tastes just like the real thing but without all the calories. You must use your HEA choice for the Parmesan for it to be free so please bear that in mind.

The TOP TIP for this dish is when you add the egg mixture to the pasta. If you add it when still on the heat you will end up with scrambled egg pasta so make sure you remove it from the heat before adding. Doing it in that way also makes it nice and creamy.

ALSO I use knorr stock pots in this dish. Make this up using the 400ml of water NOT the suggested 500ml but only use 300ml. This will give it a lovely flavour then use the other 100ml you have left for something else.

    Just a pointer; Carbonara is not normally made with cream. It uses the egg yolk and Parmesan to create the creamy sauce.
