Meal For One - Pasta Cabonara

When my boyfriend's away I make pasta cabonara. It's easy, quick and delicious.

Pasta Cabonara
Yield: 1 serving

100 grams pasta
1 egg
A small handful of grated parmesan
2 rashers of bacon, chopped into bits

1) Cook the pasta.

2) While pasta is cooking fry the bacon.

3) In a bowl, whisk the egg and add the grated parmesan.

4) When your pasta is done, strain it reserving a little of the cooking water. Add the pasta to the bacon, then take the pan off the heat and quickly add the egg mixture, stirring to evenly coat the pasta with the sauce. If you need to, add some of the pasta water to loosen the mixture. Don't put the pan back onto the heat, as you will scramble your egg (I speak from experience).

5) Eat immediately. Best enjoyed sitting on the couch watching Inspector Morse.
