Green beans and carbonara just seemed like a perfect combination. Green beans and bacon are a classic combination, so I wanted to try green beans as the star attraction in this dish. This would be great with some mushroom as well. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. (:

How to Make Green Bean Carbonara

Step-by-Step

  1. Start a dutch oven pot with salted water on high heat covered for pasta.
  2. Cook pasta of choice until aldente. Keep warm until ready to toss with the rest of ingredients. Reserve 1/4 cup of pasta water. I work on this while preparing the green beans and bacon.
  3. In a large skillet on medium low heat render bacon pieces in olive oil. Remove bacon and set aside.
  4. Add green beans and cook until tender-crisp, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add garlic and cook 3 more minutes until garlic is fragrant and tender.
  6. Add wine/chicken broth, cook until reduced by half about 5 minutes.
  7. Add pasta. Add egg and parmesean all at once. Add bacon. Toss until well combined. If your sauce is too thick for your taste, add the 1/4 cup reserved pasta water.
  8. Add lemon juice and give one final toss. Taste for salt and pepper. Serve with additional grated parmesean if desired.
