Easy Pasta Carbonara for Lunch

Easy Pasta Carbonara for Lunch

Carbonara is easy to mess up because the sauce can dry up while cooking, so I created a foolproof recipe.

Ingredients: 1 serving

1 serving (about 100 g)
■Egg yolk
■Grated cheese
1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons
■Coarsely ground black pepper
a small amount
1 clove
5 slices
Olive oil
2 teaspoons
Heavy cream
50 ml


1. Boil water and add salt. Mix the ■ ingredients and set aside. Cut the bacon into strips. Cut the garlic in half, remove the core, and crush with a knife or a wooden spoon.
2. Pour the olive oil in a frying-pan, add the garlic, and turn on the heat to low. Fry the bacon until it becomes crispy. At the same time, boil the pasta.
3. Pour 1 ladleful of pasta cooking water to the Step 2 frying pan. Simmer for a little while, and add the heavy cream. If the pasta is still cooking, turn off the heat on the pan.
4. Add the pasta into the Step 3 pan, add the ■ mixture, and mix. When the sauce is runny, mix over low heat. Serve on a plate, and sprinkle with black pepper.
