Published Wednesday, 06 April, 2016 by Sophie Copland

Super easy to make and cheesy! / Serves: 1



  • 250ml of Double Cream
  • Tagliatelle
  • Parma Ham (as much as you want)
  • Black Pepper
  • Any Extras (Peppers Sweetcorn Mushrooms)
  • Olive oil for the pan


1. Boil some water and cook the pasta like you would normally

2. Whilst doing this - use a frying pan and add a small amount of oil

3. Cut up your parma ham into small chunks and throw into the frying pan for approx 5 minutes

4. Season the parma ham with black pepper (This bit is very important)

5. After the parma ham looks fairly cooked, add the cream to the frying pan

6. Making sure the cream doesn't boil, stir gently on a low heat for the next 5 minutes.

7. Drain the pasta and add the cream sauce/parma ham. Mix well.

Add any decoration you like or extras along the way! Enjoy!

    "Super easy to make and cheesy"...

    OK, I give up.

    1. You don't put cream in a carbonara.
    2. Where's the cheese?
