Courgette Carbonara

Try to buy the best ingredients you can, as that's what really helps to make this dish amazing. I'm using a flowering variety of thyme but normal thyme is fine to use. When it comes to the type of pasta, you can serve carbonara with spaghetti or linguine, but I've been told by Italian mammas (who I don't argue with!) That penne is the original, so that's what I'm using in this recipe. Put a large pan of salted water on to boil. To make your creamy carbonara sauce, put the egg yolks into a bowl, add the cream and half the Parmesan, and mix together with a fork. Heat a very large frying pan (a 35cm one is a good start – every house should have one!) It's very important to get this next bit right or your carbonara could end up ruined. Get everyone around the table, ready to eat straight away. Nutritional Information Amount per serving: Meat free Monday: Orzo, feta and pepper salad. Fussy eaters top-your-own sweet tomato pasta.
