Noodle Carbonara

COOK TIME
30 Min

Delicate melt-in-your mouth egg noodles are tossed in our creamy Italian-style homemade sauce, for a twist on the traditional "carbonara" dish. Noodle Carbonara is sure to be a family favorite!

What You'll Need:
  • 12 ounces uncooked egg noodles
  • 8 bacon slices, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
What To Do:
  1. Cook egg noodles according to package directions; drain and keep warm in a serving bowl.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp, 8 to10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
     
  3. In the same skillet, over a medium heat, heat half-and-half with the garlic until bubbles form around edges. Whisk in 3/4 cup cheese, salt and pepper just until it starts to thicken. Stir in bacon, peas and the parsley, and cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
     
  4. Pour over noodles and toss until evenly coated. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
Notes

Why not start off this meal with a nice warm bowl of soup, like our Bistro Tomato Soup! Mmm!

When I lived in Italy and was taught to make this type of sauce in no way, shape, or form were peas used in it. Why do we add them here in the USA? So annoying.

I agree... My dad is from Italy and I have never used or seen peas added to sauce in our family sauces or gravy I have seen it on TV in ads and on cooking shows and wonder the very same thing

When I lived in Italy, my Italian nonna always included peas in her carbonara.

Glad to see a real carbonara made from scratch, not just an Alfredo sauce called carbonara!! In the summer I add fresh basil and tomato. I omit the added salt. Yummy

i use sausage for this recipe...very tasty

I agree about posting the nutrients.

The Mr. Food site rarely lists nutrients, nutritional guies, calories, etc. Unless this is your first time on this site, you should have already noticed that. Therefore, quit complaining and use another site if this does not make you happy!

No egg, egg noodles!

Where is the egg?

Excellent question! In authentic pasta alla Carbonara, the hot pasta is tossed with beaten eggs and parmesan. The raw eggs are partially cooked and thickened by the heat of the pasta, forming a delicious, rich sauce.

Do you think you could use the fat free half and half?

I am sure that you could use the fat free half and half. That is what I always buy for my coffee, so I have it on hand, and I am going to make it right now! :)

I would also like to see the nutritional guide for each recipe. I don't make them unless it is there.

This recipe sounds wonderful but how many calories per serving? I would like to see this on the other recipes as well.
