Pasta Carbonara Recipe

Pasta Carbonara is an incredibly easy dish to whip up in 20 minutes top. Serving it with fresh pasta be it gluten free or not, takes no extra time to unfold.

As I most recently have some time, I was browsing on the internet the other day. In need of new, stirring thoughts, inspirational recipes that I’ve never tried before, to surprise my loved ones with. Hunting for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t find too many interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this delicious and simple dessert simply by chance. It looked so yummy on its image, it called for fast actions.

It absolutely was not difficult to imagine how it’s made, its taste and just how much boyfriend will like it. Mind you, it is quite easy to impress the guy in terms of desserts. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I visited the site: Suncakemom and followed the step-by-step instuctions that had been combined with impressive graphics of the process. It really makes life less difficult. I can suppose it’s a bit of a effort to take photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen because you most often have gross hands so I genuinely appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this post .

With that said I’m inspired presenting my own recipes in the same way. Many thanks for the concept.

I was fine tuning the main recipe to make it for the taste of my family. Need to say it absolutely was an incredible success. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and loved having a delicacy such as this during a stressful workweek. They quite simply wanted lots more, a lot more. So next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m going to twin the amount to keep them pleased.

Heat oil in a pan then add the diced onion and salt. (Traditional Carbonara recipes don’t call for onion but onion is always good.)

Saute the onion on high heat for 5 minutes until it gets a glassy, translucent look then add the bacon, garlic and black pepper. If we cook with Pancetta or Guancale the process needs to be started with rendering the fat out of the meat and adding the onion after when there is enough fat to saute it. Also the fried bits of meat needs to be taken out while preparing the onion.

Turn the heat down to stir-fry the bacon and the onion until the onion slightly caramelizes and gets a brownish color in about 15 minutes.


Put the ingredients into a bowl and mix it well.Best-carbonara-recipe-with-traditional-or-gluten-free-pasta-process-2-SunCakeMom The mixture shouldn’t be runny nor dry to the touch but between that, it’s gonna be good to go.

Fill a pot halfway up and add 1/2 teaspoon/cup or 10g/liter Salt. Put the lid on and bring it to boil.

Take the lid off then start making the pasta in batches.

Use something with holes on like the opposite side of a shredder with big holes and a spatula or make the dumplings with a small spoon. Here we use a special tool called Spaetzle maker.

The dumplings will submerge upon getting into the water and float back up when cooked in about 30 seconds or less.

Take the surfaced pasta out from the cooking water and continue with the next batch.


Add the pasta to the onion, bacon, garlic and black pepper in the pan then stir-fry it on medium heat for a couple of minutes until all the ingredients are mixed well and uniformly heated.

Crack the eggs and beat them up in a bowl with the grated hard cheese.

Take the pan off heat and pour the egg right into the pasta while continuously stirring. Mind not to have a too hot pan as that will fry the eggs and we end up having fried egg noodles which is also a fine dish but far from Carbonara.

Serve immediately onto plates to avoid clogging of the egg.
