One pot carbonara

There’s nothing more comforting than a one pot meal that is cooked in 20 minutes! You don’t have to use mushrooms but I added them to mine!

(If cooking for one just use 100g pasta, 1 rasher bacon 1 tbsp grated Parmesan and splash of milk following the same recipe)

4 smoked bacon medallions (fine chop)

500g pasta (I add 200g chestnut mushrooms)

25g Parmesan (hea or check the syns)

1 large egg 

100ml skim milk (again syn check)

Water, salt and pepper.

1. In a pan fry the bacon until crisp, add salt and pepper, the pasta and add enough water to only just cover the pasta.

2. Bring to a boil and let the pasta absorb the water.

3. Meanwhile whisk the egg, milk and Parmesan together.

4.when almost all the water is absorbed turn the heat to low add the egg mix and stir constantly until the sauce coats the pasta and thickens ( this is completely safe to eat as we are cooking over a low heat to make sure the egg is warm enough to adhere to the pasta).

I usually stir peas into mine and serve with salad or broccoli and plenty of black pepper!
