Pasta Carbonara

Pasta Carbonara created by Rita1652

This comes via 500 All Time Great Recipes. Sometimes instead of bacon, I have used leftover ham or bologna sausage. I have also added in leftover peas.

ingredients

directions

  • Cook the noodles in a pan of boiling water, for 6-8 minutes or until al dente.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon for 2-3 minutes, then add the mushrooms and fry for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and reserve.
  • Lightly beat the eggs and cream together in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • When the noodles are cooked, drain well and return to the pan.
  • Add the bacon/mushroom mixture and any pan juices and stir into the pasta.
  • Pour in the egg/ cream mixture and half the Parmesan cheese.
  • Stir well and as you do this the eggs will cook in the heat of the noodles.
  • Pile on to warmed serving plates, sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and garnish with basil.

    We love carbonara! I did use pancetta but I skipped the mushrooms. Delicious! Made for Culinary Quest 2014/CCQ

    Creamy rich yumminess. I added a leftover sausage link, diced red onion, minced garlic cloves. Made with 1 pound pasta.

    Simple and yummy pasta carbonara. I did omit the mushrooms, since my daughter doesn't care for them. Instead, I added a bit more bacon! We really loved the flavor. Thank you!
