Pasta Carbonara - Donna Hay

This week, our Donna Hay recipe for I Heart Cooking Clubs is Fast and Fabulous and we were asked to make dinners that take under thirty minutes.  Donna is known for her delicious meals that seem to appear in seconds.  this one certainly did not take that half hour.  While the spaghetti was cooking, I mixed the ingredients and after draining the pasta, it took minutes to thicken the sauce and we sat down to eat in about 15 minutes.  There was no chopping, slicing or dicing.  It was as simple as can be and equally delicious.

While I have the ingredients for a carbonara, I left out the meat which would make it a no-no for those of us who keep kosher.  I didn't think it was missing anything.

  10. Wonderful pasta. Have never made carbonara as the use of eggs would qualify it as non vegetarian for my husband.

  11. Spaghetti Carbonara is one of my favourite dishes and one we frequently have for a quick and easy mid-week dinner. Delicious choice for "Fast & Fabulous".

  12. The recipe without the carbonara part sounds interesting, I think that would be a nice side dish on its own and may give it a try next time we are in the mood for carbonara and I'm out of the carbonara part! Sounds good to me.
