Coffee Creamer Pasta Carbonara

Coffee Creamer Pasta Carbonara

This is an easy carbonara made with coffee creamer.
It'll be ready in ten minutes.
How about trying it for a one-person lunch.

Ingredients: 1 serving

1.5 mm pasta (boiled for 5 minutes)
100 g
Bacon (cut in half)
2 slices
Egg (medium)
1
Grated cheese
2 tablespoons
Coffee creamer (5 g type)
3
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Black pepper
to taste
Mizuna greens
to taste

Steps

1. Cook the pasta. I used in a microwavable container for 9:30 minutes (30 seconds less than you usually would).
2. While cooking the pasta, cut the bacon into 1 cm pieces and cook in a frying pan with oil until crispy. Turn off the heat and let cool.
3. Combine the egg, grated cheese, and coffee creamer in a bowl and mix well.
4. Add the cooled bacon to Step 3, then add the salt and pepper and mix together.
5. Once the pasta is done cooking, add to Step 4 while still hot and quickly toss.
6. Transfer to a plate, then sprinkle black pepper on top. Garnish with chopped mizuna and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

I don't usually have heavy cream on hand, so I tried with coffee creamer instead.
