How to Cook
- Preheat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan/gas
- Remove the film but leave the spaghetti carbonara in its wooden tray.
- Place on a baking tray in the centre of the oven and cook for 25 minutes. If using a gas oven, cook for an extra 5 minutes.
- Leave to stand for 2 minutes before serving. The spaghetti is in two nests to help you serve.
- For the finishing touch, sprinkle the parmesan on top and enjoy. Make sure it’s piping hot throughout.
