Best Pasta Carbonara

December 4, 2020 Recipes 0

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 currently have a little time, I was searching on the web the other day. On the lookout for new, fascinating tips, inspiring dishes that I have never tested before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for quite some time but could not discover too many interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this scrumptious and simple treat by luck on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its image, that required prompt actions.

It was not difficult to imagine how it’s made, its taste and just how much my hubby might like it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to please the guy in terms of treats. Anyway, I went to the page and followed the step-by-step instuctions which were combined with superb pics of the method. It just makes life rather easy. I could imagine that it’s a slight effort to take snap shots in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may most often have gross hands and so i really appreciate the time and effort she put in for making this blogpost .

That being said I am inspired presenting my own, personal dishes in the same way. Thanks for the concept.

I had been tweaking the original formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must mention it had been an awesome outcome. They loved the flavour, the structure and loved getting a treat such as this in the middle of a stressful week. They basically requested more, more and more. Thus the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I am going to twin the amount to get them delighted.

This is based on the Carbonara from 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.
