Slimming World Spaghetti Carbonara: Sometimes when you get in from a day at work you just want something quick and easy for dinner! Spaghetti Carbonara using a Slimming World recipe is perfect- it takes about 15 – 20 minutes to do and is really easy.

I like this as a ‘failsafe’ recipe because it uses items you might already have in your fridge and storecupboard; bacon, eggs, parmesan, garlic and spaghetti. None of this spoils quickly like some ingredients- you can keep most of this in your fridge or cupboard for weeks so it is great as a ‘back-up’ recipe!

Nadine's Spaghetti Carbonara

You can watch the video for the recipe or see below. Here’s what you need (serves 4):

  • 400g spaghetti
  • Fry-Light
  • 100g back bacon, all visible fat removed, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 120g parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • Method:

  • Boil a pan of water for your spaghetti. Once it is boiling, add the dried spaghetti and time 10 minutes
  • Pre-heat a frying pan on the hob. Spray some Fry-Light or other low calorie cooking spray.
  • Add the bacon, cook until browned – then add the crushed garlic and stir fry for 30 seconds
  • Then, when the spaghetti is ready – drain in a colander and add the spaghetti to the frying pan
  • Add half the parmesan to the pan and stir
  • Then add the egg mixture and stir through as you turn the hob off. The heat from the spaghetti will cook the eggs. Then divide into 4 bowls
  • Add a sprinkling of parmesan to each bowl and serve
  • If you are following Slimming World, this meal is Syn free on Extra Easy if you count the parmesan as a Healthy Extra. Otherwise count 6 Syn.

    • Love carbonara! Since I’m gluten-free I’ve struggled to find decent GF spaghetti, but I bet it would work well with courgetti (my favourite!) and that would make it even less fattening too 🙂

      • I love your idea to serve with courgetti, think I may have to try this myself. Thanks for the great idea.

    • We love carbonara, but I have never made it with beaten eggs including the whites. I will have to try this next time when I haven’t the time to separate the eggs. It looks delicious.

    • Carbonara has always been one of my mid week staples. Something all the kids enjoy and easy and nutritious to make. I usually use a little milk and Greek yogurt and have the egg quantity but the same basic idea.
