Easy-Peasy British Bacon, Pea and Cheddar Pasta

A gloriously easy take on a carbonara. For a veggie-friendly version use shiitake mushrooms instead of the bacon.

  • 4 eggs 
  • 60g cheddar cheese, finely grated 
  • 400g spaghetti 
  • 300g frozen peas, defrosted 
  • 8 rashers M&S bacon, diced roughly into 2cm cubes 


  1. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl with a fork, mix in the grated cheddar cheese and season with a pinch of black pepper. 
  2. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water for 1 minute less than the packet instructions. Add in the peas for the final couple of mins to cook through. 
  3. Fry the diced bacon in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium high heat for around 5 mins, until they are golden and crisp. Remove the pan from the heat.
  4. When the pasta and peas are cooked, drain, saving a ladle full of the pasta water. Add the pasta, peas and water to the bacon pan and toss together.
  5. Pour in the egg and cheese mixture, toss through the pasta and stir for 2 mins to allow the heat from the pasta to cook the eggs. Serve with a pinch of black pepper.
