  • 1 tsp oil
  • 200g / 3/4 cup bacon lardons or chicken
  • 900ml / 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 350g / 12oz spaghetti
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 50g grated parmesan
  • To serve – chopped fresh parsley and a little more grated parmesan
  • choice of vegetables or salad on the side
  1. Add the oil to a large pot or a wok and heat. Add in the bacon lardons and cook for 3-4 minutes until soft. Remove them from the pan and put to one side in a bowl. (if using chicken brown off chicken and check it’s cooked all the way through)
  2. In the same pan add the vegetable stock and bring it to the boil. Add in the spaghetti and the crushed garlic cloves and cook for 8-10 minutes until the spaghetti is soft and all the stock has just about absorbed.
  3. Add the cream to a small bowl and crack in the two eggs. Pour this into the spaghetti and mix well.
  4. Add the grated parmesan and mix again before adding the cooked bacon/chicken back in.
  5. Serve immediately with a little chopped fresh parsley and some more granted parmesan.
