I don’t know when I fell in love with Carbonara but it has been a favorite of mine for years because it taste fantastic and because it’s super easy to make. I also love the fact that most of the time I have everything I need on hand to whip up this tasty Bacon Mushroom Carbonara in about 30 minutes.
What you’ll need for Bacon Mushroom Carbonara:
- Parmesan cheese
- black pepper
- fresh parsley
Don’t worry about the eggs! They won’t be raw!
I know that a lot of people are nervous to make carbonara because of the way that the eggs are added and heated. Don’t worry, y’all! They look from the heat of the pasta and bacon fat, they’re not raw when you eat them. When you toss them into the pasta and heated bacon, you’ll just toss them around for a bit while they cook. The egg, bacon fat and cheese makes up the creamy sauce for this Bacon Mushroom Carbonara and it’s out of this world delicious.
What if I forget to save the pasta water when I make the recipe?
Try to remember to reserve 1 cup of pasta water before you drain the pasta. This way if you need to add pasta water to the pasta to make the sauce creamer you’ll have it on hand. However, if you forget to save the pasta water before you drain it, have no fear. You can heat 1 cup of water on the stove or in the microwave and stir in ¼ teaspoon corn starch and ¼ teaspoon of salt into the water to create a fake starchy pasta water substitute.
