Carbonara Sauce

Carbonara Sauce

Ready in 20 minutes

Carbonara Sauce is another delicious Classic Italian Pasta Sauce. Creamy egg and bacon ingredients.

Very quick and easy to make and this is the amount of sauce suggested for 500g pasta (1lb).

"I used this recipe to make some Chicken Carbonara last night. It was good and I recommend it...I think I could have used more flavorful bacon (I just used plain basic bacon, and not anything that was smoked or whatever), because the sauce lacked some flavor, but the dish as a whole was great"

Very simple sauce, easy to make, tastes great. It's a family favorite at my house now and gets served quite often. Love adding a bit of chopped green onion for a bit of color and taste!

Real easy to make and good. I used ham instead of bacon like it's actually made in Italy.
