Blue Cheese Carbonara


Blue Cheese Carbonara

This recipe for Blue Cheese Carbonara was created out of a need to use up the last few pieces of Stilton I had in the fridge from Christmas and a few sorry looking vegetables in the veg rack. It produced a lovely comforting supper for one (hubby and kids had frittata to use up more of the eggs!). If you had some bacon this could be thrown into the frying pan before the vegetables.

  8. Made this for my supper this evening to use up some of the gigantic wedge of Stilton that my OH felt compelled to buy. Have to say that it was super delicious and as there was enough for two, and there was only me eating, I had to have two helpings. Thank goodness my diet is due to start any day now!! xx
