Pasta Carbonara

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 recently have some time, I had been searching on the web yesterday. In need of new, stirring thoughts, inspirational meals that I’ve never tested before, to delight my family with. Looking for a long time but couldn’t discover any interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this delicious and easy treat simply by chance. The dessert seemed so delicious on its photos, that required immediate actions.

It had been easy to imagine just how it is created, its taste and just how much my hubby might enjoy it. Actually, it is very simple to delight the guy when it comes to treats. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I got into the website: Suncakemom and simply followed the simple instuctions that were coupled with great graphics of the method. It just makes life quite easy. I could suppose it’s a slight hassle to shoot photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you will often have sticky hands therefore i genuinely appreciate the effort and time she devote to make this post .

That being said I’m encouraged to present my own recipe in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the thought.

I was fine tuning the original recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I’ve got to say it turned out an awesome success. They prized the flavor, the consistency and enjoyed getting a treat such as this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They ultimately demanded even more, many more. Thus the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m going to double the volume to keep them delighted.

Original Pasta Carbonara invented by suncakemom.


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.
