Ingredients

  • 400g spaghetti
  • 200g British turkey breast fillet, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 150ml double cream
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Salt and pepper
  • 75g Parmesan cheese, grated

Instructions

Cook the spaghetti according to the pack instructions, then drain and keep warm.

While the spaghetti is cooking, heat the oil in a deep saucepan.

Add the turkey and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until cooked through (but not overcooked).

Add the cooked spaghetti and mix well.

Place the cream and egg yolks into a bowl, whisk well and season with a little salt and pepper.

Pour over the hot spaghetti and turkey and mix well off the heat – the yolks will thicken nicely.

Finally, add the Parmesan and mix well again. Serve straight away.
