Chicken Fettuccine Carbonara

This takes the classic creamy carbonara and adds chicken to make it a more substantial meal. Chicken Carbonara is very quick and easy to make on those busy weeknights. This dish is prepared and made within 30 minutes, what more can you ask for? Some Italian restaurants I have been to have a cream based, non-egg carbonara dish. I prefer the egg (and cream) based Carbonara and that is what you will find with this recipe.

Ingredients:
• 375 g Fettuccine
• 4 slices Bacon thinly sliced
• 4 cloves Garlic

4. Add garlic, stir through and cook a further minute. Transfer bacon & garlic to a plate and set aside.
