    Here you go:

    • Serves: 4
    • Total time: Less than 30 Minutes
    • Syns per serving:
      • Green: 3
      • Original: 6½
      • Extra Easy: 1
    Print recipe

    This creamy pasta dish is traditionally high in Syns - our tasty version swaps cream for fat free fromage frais without swapping any of the flavour! It's still slurpingly delicious and almost Free!
    • 4 rashers bacon, all visible fat removed (or Quorn bacon-style pieces - see tip)
    • 3 eggs
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 tbsp fat free natural fromage frais
    • 2 level tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
    • small bunch of chives
    • 400g boiled spaghetti

    1. Roughly chop the bacon and dry fry in a non-stick pan for 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
    2. Lightly beat the eggs, season to taste and add the fromage frais and 1 tablespoon of Parmesan. Chop the chives and add to the mixture, reserving some for garnish.
    3. Add the spaghetti and egg mixture to the bacon in the pan and stir gently over a low heat until the egg starts to set.
    4. Serve immediately sprinkled with the remaining Parmesan and chives.
    Tip: To make a vegetarian carbonara, swap the bacon for Quorn bacon-style pieces (which are Free), this makes the recipe just 1 Syn on all choices!

    This recipe is not suitable for home freezing.

    Sounds nice, not a fan of parmesan so think I will swap that for half fat cheese

    bilsat Really likes to cook

    I use full fat cheddar cheese, just less of it, just 30g per person, but it gives a better taste, it's still 1Hea each!

    Agree that full fat tastes better
