FreeFrom Classic Spaghetti Carbonara
Gluten, lactose, nightshade, nut, and wheat free; can be corn, dairy and soya free (depending on the pasta you use)
For those on freefrom diets, most pasta seems to be a ‘no-no’ but for a classic, and delicious, carbonara, all you need to do is substitute gluten-free spaghetti and it is already dairy and nightshade-free. Those on dairy-free diets will have to sacrifice the Parmesan, but if you are lactose intolerant rather than dairy allergic, you will even be able to have the parmesan! See the Dr Macdonald’s article on cheese on a low-lactose diet .
6 tbsp olive oil
Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a wide pan and add the chopped onion and garlic and a pinch of salt to draw out the liquid and stop them burning.
Serves 6 – per portion
