Ingredients
  • 400g dried spaghetti
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 6 Butcher’s Selection Reduced Fat Smoked Bacon Medallions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1tsp dried rosemary
  • 4 medium egg yolks
  • 115g Philadelphia Light
  • ½tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
Method
  • Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the spaghetti according to the pack instructions. Drain and set aside, reserving a little of the cooking water.

  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the bacon, garlic and rosemary on a medium heat for 5 mins or until the bacon is starting to brown. Turn off the heat but keep the pan warm.

  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, Philadelphia Light, parsley and some black pepper with a splash of the pasta cooking water to loosen.

  • Add the cooked spaghetti to the frying pan with the bacon and stir to combine. Pour in the soft cheese mixture, adding a splash more of the cooking water if needed to thin the sauce. Mix well to combine until the sauce is thick and coating the spaghetti. Serve immediately.
