Boil some water. Wash the green beans, remove the stems and slice diagonally (they will look nicer in the dish).
In a saucepan of boiling salted water, blanch the beans. Remove them with a perforated spoon and plunge them into a bowl of cold water to keep their bright green colour.
In the same boiling water, cook the spaghetti for 8 and 10 mins. Cook the lardons in a frying pan (with no extra fat) and then add the green beans halfway through cooking.
Once the lardons are cooked, add the cream. Bring to a boil to thicken the sauce, add pepper and turn off the heat.
Drain the spaghetti. Serve on plates and then cover with the carbonara sauce with the green beans on top.
