Carbonara Recipe

Creamy Carbonara with Bacon

Untuk Bahasa Melayu, klik di sini.

My kids love spaghetti and we alternate between bolognese and carbonara at least twice a week. It's really quite hard to find a good restaurant in Kuala Lumpur  that serves delicious bolognese, I always find it a bit too tomato-ish, so I prefer to cook spaghetti bolognese at home instead. 

But for carbonara, I would recommend House of Paddington's Creamy Carbonara, it's really delicious, I always eat it with my second son and it's always barely enough for both of us :) 

It's a lazy Sunday today, so I decide to whip up Creamy Carbonara for my kids using instant carbonara sauce of course. It's a simple recipe and very fast to cook. 

Below is the Carbonara Recipe:

1 jar of Carbonara Sauce ( you can try Dolmio's Mushroom and Herbs or Prego's Cheese and Herbs)
1 packet of streaky bacon (about 100gm)
3 eggs
2 slices of cheddar cheese
fresh mushrooms as desired
1/2 cup water
spaghetti or any type of pasta as needed.

halal bacon

Dolmio Pasta Sauce - tasted a bit tangy so I diluted it with some water

Cooking Method:

1) Boil the pasta with a bit of oil,a pinch of salt and some dried italian herbs
2) Separately boil three eggs (make it soft boil)
3) Cut the streaky bacon into small slices and fry them in a pan with 2-3 tablespoon of butter until crispy.
4) Add in sliced mushrooms into the streaky bacon, then add in the Carbonara sauce and water, simmer for a while.
5) Add in the cheese and stir until melted.
6) Lastly, put in the soft boiled eggs. 

Pour the Carbonara sauce on the desired pasta and serve hot.
