Preparation of Pasta a la Carbonara:

The carbonara sauce that we prepare here is the most complete that we usually make, since we add onion, bacon, mushrooms and cream, which is a very tasty combination of flavors. If you prefer a different carbonara sauce to the one we describe, you can use one of the ones you can find on the web, or use one you like. As for the chosen pasta, we use spaghetti, but you can use macaroni or any other sauce you like.
The preparation of this dish is not going to be difficult for you, besides we detail the same step by step so that you encourage you to prepare it at home. Let’s go with the detailed recipe. First of all we are going to wash the fresh ones well, to remove all the dirt that they could have. If they are not laminated, cut them into sheets that are not too thick. When you’re done, peel the onion and cut it into small cubes. Finally, take any bacon or bacon you have and cut it into strips about one centimeter thick.
Put the pasta to cook, while we make the sauce on the other side, to have everything ready more or less at the same time and to be able to serve the dish very hot. Put a pot with plenty of water to boil. Add a handful of salt, and we also add a spoonful of butter or margarine, to give more flavor to the pasta. When it starts to boil, add the 300 grams of pasta and let it cook well.
Meanwhile, in a large frying pan add some extra virgin olive oil and when it is hot add the onion to brown it. Add a handful of salt on top to help it poach. After a few minutes, when it starts to colour, add the sliced mushrooms so that they are cooked at the same time. Once the onion is tender, add the bacon or pancetta and brown it well on both sides.
If the pasta is already done, drain it well and put it in the pan with the onion, mushrooms and bacon. Add the cooking cream, stir and leave on a low heat for a few minutes so that the sauce thickens a little. When serving the pasta on the plates, add the Parmesan cheese on top and enjoy one of the best ways to eat pasta. We hope you like this carbonara pasta recipe and keep it in your personal recipe book.
