Carbonara has got to be my favorite way to eat pasta. The sauce is amazing! Rich and Creamy!!!! This dish goes together pretty fast and never disappoints. Here is how I made it!
I start by cooking my bacon. I prefer to chop the bacon before I cook it. Drain on a paper towel and set aside.
Place the noodles and the cheese mixture back into the pan that you cooked your noodles in. You will want to turn the heat on a medium-low. You will want to stir constantly so the pasta doesn’t stick to the pot. If you sauce isn’t to the consistency that you prefer, you can add the starch water. I always add a bit and then stir. If I need more, then I add a bit more. You may or may NOT use all of the water. Depends on the type of pasta you are using. Cook for about 3-4 minutes to allow the egg to cook all the way.
