Classic Spaghetti Carbonara with Oven Roasted Vallei Kreef, Brown mushrooms and creamed sauce

There is something so special about a real Carbonara - which has no cream added to it but consists of pasta gently tossed in whipped egg . We honour this dish with some added Delico Vallei Krewe which has the perfect combination of chicken and smoky bacon wrapped around it to add to this dish. Large brown mushrooms and asparagus takes it up a notch. This dish can be assembled quickly and is good to get the whole family involved and a valuable addition to your budget stretching recipe collection.
