what can i use instead of double cream ?

I'd use fromage frais. Or you could use half fat creme fraiche, the syns would be lower than for cream.

Still - 3tbsp double cream would be 10.5 syns, between 4 it's only just over 2.5 syns a portion so actually not too bad!

so whats the main differences between quark and fromage frais? do you think i should use FF for my carbonara instead? questions questions!!! :) hi-jacking the thread!
I prefer FF for Carbonara but I use quark. Quark makes a thicker coating to the pasta that FF but either work.
FF is easier to get in my local shops so I use that.

quark is nice if you whip it with a couple of spooons of sweetner, its makes it creamer consistency. but for your receipe I'd use cream and syn it.
