Spaghetti Carbonara

    Description

    This is the best pasta dish on the planet, in my opinion. It exemplifies everything great about Italian cuisine – simple, quick and with an emphasis on quality ingredients.

    Method

    1. Put the kettle on to boil for the pasta. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic and set aside. Chop bacon and fry in olive oil in a large frying pan or pot (it will need to be big enough to mix the pasta and the sauce together before serving).

    2. Get a pan of boiling water, add plenty of salt and a glug of olive oil and keep it simmering. When the bacon just starts to turn crispy, add spaghetti to the boiling water. When the bacon is nice and crispy, add the onion and garlic to the pan along with a knob of butter. Turn the heat down and leave to cook gently. Now make your sauce: in a jug, whisk the eggs, cream, Parmesan and black pepper. When the pasta is Al Dente, drain it, reserving some of the cooking water.

    3. Add the pasta to the pan with the bacon and briefly stir (this helps to cool everything slightly to avoid scrambling the eggs). Now pour in all of the egg-cream mixture and mix everything together thoroughly. The residual heat from the pasta and bacon will gently cook the eggs and melt the cheese, resulting in an amazingly rich creamy sauce. Add some of the pasta cooking water to achieve a more fluid consistency. Keep stirring until the sauce is silky and smooth, then serve and eat immediately.

      I like this recipe because it is fairly simple and easy it is also cheap to make. I first made it myself.It's traditonal italian comfort food.

      Method

      1. Boil spaghetti in boiling water with salt and a drizzle of oil for 20 mins or until aldente.15 minutes later fry the bacon in olive oil and crush the garlic into the pan, cook until bacon is nice and crisp.Take the pan off the heat and hopefully by this time the pasta should be ready.Drain the pasta in a colander.Then place the drained pasta back in the pan and add the bacon with all the extra juices.Stir in well.Then pour in the beaten eggs and stir in well, try to avoid placing the pan back on the heat because the egg starts to scrambble.Then pour in cream.Add a drizzle of olive oil (optional) and parmasan cheese (optional)and place in a preheated serving bowl.Enjoy!!

      Tips

      Serve with a french baguette and salad.and a glass of white Italian wine.

        I tried making this after seeing the comments and yes I would agree this is a good Carbonara - almost as good as my mum makes and she should know as she comes from the Old Country.

        Fantastic recipe I did this except used my own cheese and used chicken breast that had been left to marinate in chopped garlic and mixed herbs all day. also if you are only cooking for less people id lessen the sauce and also i wondered if anyone knew how to thicken it abit? Flour? Thanks loved it!!

      Carbonara Sauce (Slimming World Recipe)

        Low fat alternative to the normal carbonara sauce!

        Method

        1. 1.Place in a non-stick saucepan the onion with the garlic and stock. Gently cook for 4-5 min., stirring frequently. Remove all visible fat from the bacon (or buy the medallions), cut into strips, add to the pan and cook on high until the bacon has cooked through.
        2. 2. In a small bowl whisk the fromage frais, eggs, parmesan cheese, parsley and seasoning.
        3. 3. Cook the pasta of your choice, drain and return to the sauce pan on a very low heat. Add the bacon mixture and then the egg mixture. Stir and cook for a further 3 minutes.

        Tips

        Instead of the bacon you can use Peas, green beans and asparagus to make it a primavera sauce. Also try it with smoked salmon and Peas. Very versatile sauce and delicious.

            Thanks solo1, I added more cream as you suggested and it worked a treat, you can really control the consistancy easily this way, thansk so much for your help. Never to have dry Carbonara again, YES!

            This is my favourite Italian dish - your recipe makes it look so easy. Mine alwayd turns out far too dry, can you sugest anything I can do about this? Perhaps I am cooking it to long?
