Olive oil for frying.
3 cloves of garlic (fresh preferably)
Double cream 50mls (optional)

A handful of chopped parsley .
500 mgms chopped bacon (I always use bacon bits they are cheaper)
1 kilo of linguine or spaghetti.
Grated fresh Parmesan (optional but good)
Salt and pepper to season.
Lets get cooking………
Boil a large pan of water when bubbling add the pasta, stir for a minute so it doesn’t stick together.
Heat the olive oil and fry the bacon till cooked, add the onions, garlic and fry till soft.
Poach the eggs and drain on a plate ready for serving.
Drain the pasta and add the bacon, onion and garlic and black pepper, add the beaten eggs and cream and quickly mix and heat through thoroughly!
Serve with poached perched on top of a delicious pile of tasty carbonara and garnish with the finely chopped parsley and shaved parmesan. Season to taste.
