    Just wanted to say that i found a carbonara recipe in an old free foods recipe book and gave the sauce a shot and made up my own stuff to go in it. it was fabulous. for two just an egg and 50g of very low fat creme freche and garlic (and parsley if you want to) and cook on a low heat with other cooked ingredients so it doesn't scramble. my husband demanded more so i really recommend it :D

    I gave up on trying to find a way to make it, so just started mixing cheese spread and boiling water, and I love it lol

    Mine is similar. I fry off mushrooms and bacon whilst the spaghetti is cooking. Drain off the spag and add to mushrooms and bacon (in a wok) and then quickly stir in my sauce mixture (4tbs lf fromage frais and 3 or 4 eggs with a tbs of parmesan). My whole family (3 adults and 2 children) adore it and it is so quick to do after a day at work.

    I use just 1 egg, a little bit of the pasta water and some parmesan for my carbonara sauce, is delicious.

    I tend to use Quark in mine, I feel it gives a bit better texture..when I can't be bothered doing bacon I just chop up some extra lean ham and shove that

    Just a reminder that even RF creme fraiche isn't syn free although it's not hugely high in syns.

    Basic/Non Branded Foods Creme fraiche, reduced fat 1 level tbsp

    Basic/Non Branded Foods Creme fraiche, reduced fat 28g

    Although the WW creme fraiche is a bit lower in syns
