Creamy Bacon Carbonara is a classic Italian creamy pasta, bacon, mushrooms and onions cooked together and tossed in a cheesy egg mixture for an easy 30 minute meal! A quick and easy dinner that is made in minutes!
Beat the eggs, cream, Parmesan, parsley, salt and the red pepper together in a bowl. I just used a fork.
Fry the bacon until crisp, then crumble and set aside.
With 1 -2 Tbsp. bacon grease, sauté the onion and the mushrooms until the onions are translucent and golden.
Drain the pasta and while still warm, add to the onions and mushrooms.
Pour cream mixture into the pasta, and stir over low heat for one to two minutes.
I don’t do this on high heat, or you will make scrambled eggs.
Serve with additional Parmesan, and a loaf of Crusty French bread and a salad. So Good!
(** I doubled the sauce recipe and I saved a bit of the pasta water, just in case my sauce got thicker than I liked – simply add a bit if you need).
