Healthy and creamy carbonara pasta

There is something about pasta that makes it quite often a family favourite. But if you are trying to lose weight you might have thought that carbonara would be off the menu due to the high fat content.

But that doesn’t have to be the case if you just make a few tweaks here and there, without compromising on taste.

Thanks to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Renae Nicolson for sending us this great recipe.
