Method

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.
