So, sticking with this autumn theme, another firm favourite in my house is carbonara. This recipe is just the ideal mix of creamy perfection with all the meaty goodness! Mmmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! And the best bit, it is so unbelievably easy.
For four people, you're going to need:
2 tbsp olive oil
4 egg yolks
30g grated Parmesan
A splash of white wine
2 tbsp single cream
salt and pepper to flavour
Heat a glug of olive oil in a pan and cook the pancetta until crispy then pop to the side.
Beat together the egg yolks, Parmesan, white wine, cream and a little salt and pepper. Add the pancetta and mix all together.
Cook the pasta and as soon as it is done mix together with the sauce. You want to move fast on this because you don't want the egg to cook.
And that's it. Honestly, that is all you have to do.
We had some homemade garlic bread with ours which is just as simple. Mix butter with grated garlic spread over bread, top with a layer of Parmesan and grill until crispy.
Serve with a glass of cold wine and watch with some Great British Bake Off.
