Cook the Pasta
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
  • When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, reserve a cup of pasta water then drain the linguine in a colander and pop back in the pot, off the heat. 
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Fry the Bacon
  • While the pasta cooks, finely chop the chives (use scissors if you prefer).
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, add the bacon lardons. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook lardons thoroughly.
  • Fry until golden, stirring occasionally, 5-8 mins.
Make the Sauce
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix 1 egg (double for 4p) with the creme fraiche, cheese and a good amount of pepper.
  • Once the lardons are ready, add the drained linguine to the pan.
  • Cook on medium-high heat, stirring, until combined and warmed through, 2-3 mins. 
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the egg. Stir together to coat well. 
Finish and Serve
  • Add the peas to the pasta and stir to warm through. 
  • Loosen the sauce with a splash of reserved pasta water if desired.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Divide your creamy carbonara style pasta between bowls.
  • Top with a sprinkling of chives.
