Rapunzel Hair Spaghetti

Tangled is a fun Disney movie following the story of Rapunzel. Whilst it barely reflects the Brothers Grimm story (however Disney’s Into the Woods uses a closer approach to the story), it’s still a fun loving story about a girl exploring the world she sought after for so long.

The dish I made for Tangled is a Spaghetti Carbonara where the spaghetti represents Rapunzel’s long hair. I added extra bacon, to reflect Flynn’s piggish greed at the beginning of the movie, and peas to match the colours of Pascal the chameleon. This dish also utilises a large trusty frying pan, much like the characters do!

Ingredients

1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic (minced)
4 strips Smoked Bacon (diced)
200ml Single Cream
3 Eggs (yolks only)
75g Parmesan cheese (plus some for serving)
Salt
140g Garden Peas
200g Spaghetti
Pepper

This is a great quick dish to have during the week. It doesn’t use too many ingredients and has a mixture of tastes that fill you up nicely. If you’re wanting a vegetarian alternative, remove the bacon and add some mushrooms instead. Switch out the Parmesan for a veggie alternative.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the spaghetti to the saucepan and cook until soft. Add the peas for the last 5 minutes.
Step 2
In a large frying pan, heat the oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat for 3 minutes. Add the bacon to the pan and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, until golden and crisp and the fat has been rendered. Empty the frying pan then add the cream to warm for a few minutes.
Step 3
In a medium bowl whisk together the cream, egg yolks and most of the Parmesan cheese (leave some to sprinkle over the pasta at the end).
Step 4
Drain the spaghetti and peas. Add the pasta to the frying pan and then add the cream mixture and bacon. Season with salt and pepper and toss until the sauce coats the spaghetti. Transfer to bowls and serve immediately with the remaining Parmesan.
