Ingredients
150g gluten free spaghetti
6 slices back bacon, chopped
200ml double cream
200ml milk
2 large egg yolks
250g grated parmesan

Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions, drain and set aside.
  2. Add the bacon to a large heavy frying pan or skillet and saute over low heat until crisp. Transfer bacon to some kitchen paper to absorb excess grease.

  4. Add spaghetti, bacon and basil to the skillet and toss well to combine.
