Had to sign up just to write a review, give this product a wide birth, I've never known a carbonara to be 90% white sauce and 10% pasta, who decided that proportion was correct?? Nothing fine about it, even the dog turned his nose up at it
Taste less, sauce like wallpaper paste .do not buy
quality not good at all, sauce was like wall paper paste, wiil not buy again .
Full of flavour, good quality ready meal
Very tasty ready meal, good cheesey, bacony flavour and enjoyable for a labour-free meal when you need one. Have bought several times. I wasnt confused by the cooking instructions, perhaps they have amended them.

Film lid cannot be removed without a blade. The film lid of this and other Tesco Finest round dishes eg ragu with Pappardelle and Spaghetti Bolognese is too thick and impossible to remove without using a knife or scissors. The film lids on rectangular dishes, however are good and fit for purpose.
I don't know
Sauce was ok but the pancetta was off
This is not Spaghetti Carbonara! Tasted awful would give it Zero Stars if I could.
Really pretty poor. As others have noted, the cooking instructions are RIDICULOUS. Who possibly thought that was a good idea? I now only understand what it means due to the explanation in another review. I fell foul to it and ended up with an overdone pile of sludge. And again, as someone else says - the foil needed to be cut into to stir the contents during the process, it was impossible to peel. All in all, a pretty poor experience.
Excellent product but confusing instructions
This is an excellent meal, but I am withholding 5 stars because (as others have noted) the cooking instructions, both here and on the packaging, are confusing. I think they mean that the total time for 800W is 4 minutes (for 900W 3 m 30 s) but one could read the instructions as 8 minutes (7 minutes), which would ruin the food. You need to add 'Total' to the first line of instructions and change the highlighting (on the packaging) to another colour for that line.

Grizzle not Pancetta.
The 2 stars are for spaghetti and sauce. The pancetta was appalling - especially for your 'finest.' Could only chew/eat 2 bits. Rest was spat out because just grizzle or somesuch.
