Super Easy Pasta Carbonara

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Ashley S.

The wine really sets this recipe off! It's super simple and a go to favorite of mine that I could eat everyday! Sometimes if I don't have pancetta I'll just use bacon and occasionally if I have leftover priscutto I'll throw some of that in there as well. This is the easiest, tastiest carbonara recipe I have ever made!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring salted water to a boil and add pasta.
  2. Cook pancetta, bacon, and garlic with olive oil in a pan. You'll want the garlic to turn a nice golden (not burnt!) color.
  3. While this cooks in a seperate bowl (make sure it's large enough to mix with all ingredients at the end) mix the cheese, 2 eggs, and pepper. Set this aside until pasta is done.
  4. When pancetta and bacon is crisp and garlic is golden add in the cup of white wine and scrap the little bits off the bottom of your pan. Cook for a few minutes to let the flavors come together.
  5. Drain pasta and let cool slightly, maybe 1 minutes.
  6. Add to bowl with cheese and egg mixture and stir, stir, stir! I stir until most of the cheese seems melted, then add in the bacon mixture and stir some more. Top it off with fresh parsley and enjoy!
