Carbonara sauce

Bacon & broccoli spaghetti carbonara


One of Grant’s favourite pasta dishes is tortellini carbonara.  I found a recipe for carbonara sauce from Donna Hay that looked pretty easy to make so I decided to cook it for Grant on Valentine’s Day this year.  And because I love broccoli, I added that to the sauce … and used gluten-free spaghetti for a really delicious main course.  It was a winner for the whole family!
