    Nice recipe. I used a vintage cheese & only 300g of the cream & it made plenty of sauce for four people. I also only put a dash of milk into my corn flour & it worked a treat.

    A tad too cheesey for carbonara but a fantastic sauce all the same.   Might halve the cheese next time.

  • Lovely! A little bit too

    Lovely! A little bit too creamy, I only used 300g of cream and still too much.. It said to mix milk with the flour but no mention on how much milk, I only put a bit in to mix up the flour. Thanks, it was very tasty and lots of left overs.
