Cheat’s Cabonara

My cabonara contains more proteins and you can do either lighter version with sour cream or a bit heavier with cream cheese. The real Italians will not touch this with a 10 foot barge pole!

For 2 you’ll need:

150 grams spaghetti
4 rashers of bacon, chopped
1 egg yolk
½ cup sour cream for lighter version or ½ cup cream cheese for richer sauce
2-3 tablespoons of milk or cream
6 medium size mushrooms, sliced
1 chicken breast, boneless and skinless, sliced
1 spring onion, chopped
Grateก Parmesan
Salt and pepper

Fry bacon until crisp and set aside. Fry mushrooms until lightly brown and set aside. Cook pasta in boiling water. Whisk sour cream, cream, cheese and egg yolk in a jug. Fry chicken with a little bit of oil in the same pan that you cooked bacon and mushroom until cooked through. Add mushrooms and sour cream mixture. Stir quickly – don’t let it boil then remove from the heat and add hot pasta. Return too gentle heat but only briefly if you want to make sure that the egg yolk is properly cooked. If it becomes too dry – add some water (I use cooking liquid from pasta). Season with salt and pepper and add bacon and chopped spring onion. Toss well and serve warm. Garnish with more Parmesan and black pepper
