Pasta alla Carbonara
I love pasta. And this is one of my all-time favorite pasta dishes. In fact it’s one of my Top Ten Favorites from O Taste & See Some More! Here’s why:
it’s quick and easy
it’s a one-dish meal–all you need is a side salad to complete the meal
kid’s love it…it’s creamy and cheesy with ham or bacon; what’s not to love?
by “dressing it up” just a bit, it makes an easy “company” meal
I can make it “stretch” if one or two extra people show up for supper
- I generally have the ingredients on hand so I can make it for supper tonight if you just decide to “drop in”
6 strips of bacon fried and crumbled or 1/4-1/2 C. (35-70 g) diced ham
2 T. soft butter or oil
1 C. (250 ml) cream or evaporated milk
3/4 C. (60 g) grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb. (500 g) spaghetti, twists, etc.
salt and pepper
Cook pasta according to directions on box.
Meanwhile, mix together in a bowl the butter/oil, cream/evaporated milk, bacon/ham and cheese.
As soon as you drain the pasta, pour the milk mixture over the hot pasta and mix well. Let set a few minutes to absorb milk and cheese. If it is too dry, you can add a bit more cream/milk.
