First time making carbonara pasta, pretty happy with the results!!! Will definitely make it again. 😊😊🍝 I found an easy recipe with only 5 ingredients and adapted it a little bit. I'm sure there are more elaborate or authentic versions, but I wanted to try something easy for my first time and it was surprisingly creamy with no added cream or butter.
EASY CARBONARA PASTA
adapted from Damn Delicious
1- Boil pasta (half pack of spaghetti)
2- Pan fry bacon (I didn't have bacon so I used half w pack of salami. Pancetta is also recommended. ) with some minced garlic (I also added fresh peas) on medium heat
3-Stir together 1.5 cup grated Parmesan cheese with 2 room temperature eggs. Using room temperature eggs will help the eggs not scramble when you cook the sauce. Mix with strained pasta when pasta is cooked.
4-Stir pasta on super low heat with salami, peas until carbonara sauce is slightly creamy. This should take no longer than 1 minute.
5- Salt and pepper
6- Plate, top with more grated fresh parm and serve!
