Ham & Asparagus Carbonara (Jamie Oliver)

I saw this recipe during Jamie Oliver month for Cook Like A Star and I instantly fell in love
So glad I had the chance to try out, and true enough, it's easy and delicious!

Recipe is from HERE

What you need:

2 egg yolks
1/4 cup half and half (original recipe used heavy cream)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter
250g fusilli (original recipe recommended penne, linguine or spaghetti)
200g ham (original recipe used bacon)
100g baby asparagus
salt, pepper
chopped fresh parsley to garnish (I didn't use)

  1. Combine egg yolks, half and half and parmesan cheese and stir in butter
  2. Cook pasta as directed
  3. Cook ham then add in asparagus, add in pepper
  4. Add in pasta and toss
  5. Off the heat. While still hot, drizzle in the egg yolk mixture and stir continuously til pasta coated with lots of cream
  6. If too thick, add in water from drained pasta 1 tbsp. at a time til you get the consistency you prefer
  7. Serve immediately
