Jean was the lady I boarded with when I first went to uni; her recipe for bacon and parsley pasta has evolved into one of my all time favourites. I sometimes substitute other vegetables - snow peas, baby spinach, handful of rocket - if I have no zucchini to hand. I am not great at carbonara, but this is what I cook instead. And, obviously, you can leave out the chicken, its just as nice.
