A quick and easy twist on the Italian dish, Carbonara



  • Spaghetti - enough for however many you're cooking for
  • 1 Tub of Philadelphia - if you are using a lot of spaghetti it may be a good idea to use more than one tub
  • Bacon - enough to feed the number of people you're cooking for, bearing in mind the pieces shrink when they are fried.


1 - Put the spaghetti in the saucepan and start to boil it

2- Cut up the bacon into squares and then get a frying pan with a little olive oil start to fry the bacon on a moderate heat

3 - When the spaghetti is cooked put it in a large bowl and mix it in with the Philadelphia - this part depends on how much Philadelphia you want covering your spaghetti

4 - When the bacon is fried and quite crispy tip it out carefully onto some absorbent kitchen paper to get rid of the grease and oil. And then stir into the spaghetti
