Recipe: Asparagus & Pancetta Carbonara



  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to boil and cook pasta according to pack instructions until al dente. Drain, reserving 100ml cooking water.
  2. Heat a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat; fry pancetta for 1min, until releasing its fat. Add asparagus and fry for 5min until asparagus is tender and pancetta is starting to crisp.
  3. In a jug, whisk together cream, egg yolks, and half the Parmesan.
  4. Add pasta to pancetta pan and mix. Remove from heat; quickly (but thoroughly) stir in reserved cooking water and cream mix. Serve immediately, sprinkled with remaining Parmesan and freshly ground black pepper.
