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 a little time, I was surfing on the web last week. Trying to find new, stirring ideas, inspirational meals that I’ve never tasted before, to amaze my loved ones with. Searching for quite some time yet could not find lots of interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I found this delicious and simple dessert by accident at Suncakemom. It seemed so yummy on its photo, that required instant action.

It had been easy to imagine how it is made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will like it. Mind you, it is very easy to keep happy the man when it comes to desserts. Anyways, I visited the webpage and followed the precise instuctions that were coupled with wonderful snap shots of the procedure. It just makes life rather easy. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to take photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may most often have sticky hands so that i pretty appreciate the hard work she put in for making this blogpost .

With that said I’m empowered to present my own formulas in the same way. Appreciate your the idea.

I was fine tuning the original formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I must mention it was a terrific outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the structure and enjoyed getting a sweet such as this during a hectic workweek. They ultimately demanded more, more and more. Thus the next occasion I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna multiply the amount .

Base:

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.

Pasta:

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.

Assembly:

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.
