Carbonara Recipe – Ingredients

  • Pasta – (your choice – my favorite with this carbonara recipe is fettuccine)
  • 8 rashers Bacon – chopped into small pieces
  • Sweet Corn Kernels (optional) – fresh or frozen
  • Small carton Fresh Cream
  • Parmesan cheese to serve (optional)
  • Black pepper to serve (optional)

Carbonara Recipe – Method

  1. Start cooking your chosen pasta
  2. Cook bacon in fry pan – add a little oil if necessary to stop bacon sticking.  I like to cook until quite crisp
  3. Next, add corn to pan and fry with bacon for approx 1 minute
  4. Add cream and heat through – simmer for a minute of two
  5. You’re done!  Serve with cooked pasta – I like to add the pasta to the fry pan and mix all together
  6. Serve with Parmesan cheese and black pepper
