It’s Monday again which means that it is time to share with you another recipe which I have made. Today I am going to share a pasta dish which is something which I have not done for a long time. Recently, you will know if you read my meal plans that we had a cheesey bacon and sausage carbonana. It came around because we had some sausages which needed to be used up so I turned them into this tasty meal. It was a pretty simple dish but the twist of having sausage in it was something which I really enjoyed. I feel like this meal was actually very comforting and warm and we actually had it during a cold spell when that is what you want to consume.
Ingredients- Serves 6
5 Tablespoons of soft butter
2 egg yolks
360ml double cream
150g cooked spaghetti
450g sliced sausage
225g bacon cut into pieces
1-2 teaspoons crushed garlic
115g Parmesan Cheese
115g Italian Blend Cheeses
- In a small bowl, cream the soft butter by beating it against the side of the bowl with a wooden spoon until it is soft and fluffy.
- In another small bowl, beat the eggs and egg yolks with a whisk until they are well blended, then stir in 50g grated cheese. Set both bowls aside.
- Put the spaghetti into the boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon to be sure the strands don’t stick to one another. Stir occasionally, about 7-12 minutes.
- Add oil to the pan and fry the bacon and sausage fry until browned then flip over the sausage.
- Once sausage is cooked move the cooked sausages to the side of the pan, reduce heat and add your garlic and blend in with your cooked sauage.
- Stir in the cream to bacon and sausage. Bring the cream to a simmer and keep it warm until the spaghetti is done.
- When the spaghetti is cooked, drain it thoroughly in a large colander. Stir in the creamed butter, tossing and turning the spaghetti with tongs to coat every strand.
- The stir in the hot bacon, sausage and cream mixture and finally the beaten eggs and cheese, mixing everything together thoroughly.
- The heat of the pasta and other ingredients should cook the raw egg on contact.
- Taste and season with garlic salt and a few grindings of pepper.
I think this meal only took around 20-30 minutes which is not very long. These does mean that you can make this on a work night.
Have you ever thought about doing a twist on carbonana? I loved the twist which we did on this meal.
