How to Make Creamy Bacon Pasta Carbonara

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook your noodles per package directions.

    Beat the eggs, cream, Parmesan, parsley, salt, pepper, garlic salt and the red pepper together in a bowl. I just used a fork.
  2. Fry the bacon until crisp, then crumble and set aside.
  3. With 1 -2 Tbsp. bacon grease, saute the onion. garlic and the mushrooms until the onions are translucent.
  4. Drain the pasta and while still warm, add to the onions,garlic and mushrooms. Pour cream mixture into the pasta, and stir over low heat for one to two minutes.

    Make sure you cook on low, so as not to have scrambled eggs.
  5. Crumble the crisp bacon over the top & serve with additional Parmesan.

    Add a loaf of Crusty French bread and a salad.
