Syn free spaghetti carbonara

Using Parmesan as my healthy extra A, this deliciously creamy dish was totally Syn free on Slimming World. If you'd have given me it in a restaurant I'd have thought it was laden with syns - it was so creamy and tasted just like the real thing!! Just what you want from these recipes - for it to not feel like you're 'on a diet'.

Because, let's be honest, how many diets let you eat spaghetti carbonara with no guilt attached?

This recipe is to serve one person (obviously easy to adapt to feed more)


- Two rashers of lean bacon with all the fat cut off (I used more than this because I LOVE bacon) chopped into pieces
- One egg
- Salt and pepper
- Two tablespoons of fat free natural yoghurt
- 30g Parmesan cheese grated
- One clove of garlic peeled and crushed
- 100g dried spaghetti


- Cook the spaghetti, drain well and return to the pan
- Spray a non-stick frying pan with Frylight and fry the bacon for 2 to 3 minutes then turn off the heat
- Lightly beat the egg, season to taste and stir in the natural yoghurt along with 15g of the grated Parmesan
- Add the bacon to the cooked spaghetti and mix together well over a low heat
- Stir in the egg mixture and mix it all together coating the spaghetti
- Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan over and serve

Then enjoy!!

This is totally Syn free thanks to using my 30g of Parmesan as my HEA - yippee! If you've used your HEA for the day, 30g Parmesan is six syns.

Here's a photo of my creation (excuse the pasta twists, we didn't have enough spaghetti!!)
