How to Cook
- Preheat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan/gas mark 7. Be careful not to grill by mistake!
- Remove the film but leave the carbonara in its wooden tray*.
- Place on a baking tray in the centre of the oven (away from any element or flame) and cook for 25 mins. If using a gas oven, cook for an extra 10 minutes.
- Stir thoroughly covering all the spaghetti with the sauce. Leave to stand for 2 mins before serving. Make sure it’s piping hot.
*Our wooden trays are designed for the oven. Just make sure they aren’t placed close to any element or flame.
