Another Carbonaara

Published by Jess

Cheap, quick, easy and super tasty pasta for one.



  • # 2-3 rashers of bacon (depends on how carnivorous you feel)
  • # cup of pasta (any type - typical is spaghetti but I like penne)
  • # 1 egg
  • # 50ml of single cream or milk
  • # handful of grated cheese (any type)
  • # 1-2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • # black pepper


# Boil water using kettle, then add to a saucepan with pasta and boil for specified time

# Dice bacon rashers into rough cubes and fry in oil til cooked pink

# Whisk up egg, milk, black pepper and crushed garlic cloves

# When pasta is done, strain water then put back into saucepan

# Add whisked ingredients and stir in

# Add bacon and cheese to saucepan and stir some more.

# Stir until the whisked ingredients are less runny but not like scrambled eggs.

ET VOILA! Enjoy.

    Hi, I'm a chef and found this recipe precise and easy to cook. To any one who commenting saying "it's not good" or "there's no need for the cream" clearly don't know much about food. I love Italian food and the Carbonara Recipe is common and a typical Italian dish.

    Love it!

    The cream is just a waste - you don't need it and it is fattening.

    This sounds really nice. I've looked around for carbonara recipie and fine that they all want this fancy pansy ingrediants that are like really expensive... but this one sounds really simple and really cheap, will have to save it and do it sometime (is very glad i found this site now!!! THANK YOU GOOGLE!!!) will post how it went and what i thought but considering i love carbonara and trying things for a first time, i'm sure it'll be great ^_^

    It was nice, not perfect but only because I was rushing. Thank you, it only took 15 minutes.

    why woman why?!
    I think you need to get a life, instead of making up new things to do with carbonara. Really.
