This carbonara is full of flavour, and even though it doesn’t use a ton of butter and cream, it still tastes wonderful!
Top tip: Serve with a side of veggies to get that 5 a day portion in there too.
HEALTHIER PASTA CARBONARA
SERVES 2 ADULTS & 2 CHILDREN
400g good quality spaghetti
2 tbsp olive oil
1 white onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
125ml Greek yogurt
3 egg yolks
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
140g frozen peas, cooked
Small bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped, to serve
Cook the spaghetti to your liking.
Heat the oil in a saucepan, then gently fry the onion and garlic until the onion becomes translucent. Pour in the milk and Greek yogurt and stir really well.
Warm until it starts to bubble, then remove from the heat. Whisk in the egg yolks, then sprinkle in the cheese. The sauce should be hot, which will cook the eggs perfectly. Pour the sauce over the hot pasta, along with the peas, then sprinkle over some fresh parsley to serve.
