Here's my own simple version of carbonara that my kids and hubby love so much;

garlic (about 6 cloves or more)
Bacon (about 250 grams)
Knorr Cream of chicken soup (yung naka pack about 30 pesos ata un)
Carnation Eavap (big can)
Nestle Cream (Yung nasa puch [textspeak!])
Quickmelt Cheese
1 kg pasta

Saute garlic, add in chopped bacon. After about 3 to 5 minutes add the mixture of knorr chicken soup and water pero make it thicker, medyo bawasan ng 1 cup of water based sa nakalagay sa instruction sa label. Stir continously then pag medyo thick na siya add in the carnation evap and nestle cream as well. Halo lang ng halo then ilagay na yung grated cheese about half lang. then pag ok na yung texture tikam nyo na siya. Ako kasi i dont put spices na since okay yung lasa ng knorr chicken soup. Food is ready.

i love life..

Mga sis, no offense sa mga carbonara recipes nyo but I just wanna share the real traditional Italian carbonara sa Tuscany. Actually, sila walang cream ang carbonara nila kasi nga masyado silang conscious sa calories considering may egg and bacon na nga na kasama. But well, taste is subjective but for those who want to try, eto ang recipe nila, wala lang measurements kasi estimation lang ang gamit ko.

Spaghetti or Bucatini (this is the suited pasta for this sauce)
Egg yolk
Pecorino cheese

So here it goes, first prepare the sauce. Chop the onion into smallest pieces. Chop the bacon lengthwise, depende kung gaano kakapal gusto niyo but ako medyo mas malalaki sa size ng chopped onion.

Sauté the onion and bacon bits in olive oil until the bacon bits are crispy. Set aside.

Boil some water with salt! (taste the water and make sure na may lasa). Put the pasta kapag kumulo na then wait until it cooks. Better kung al dente kasi lulutuin mo pa ulit ito with the sauce. Drain.

Pour the sauce into the pasta and cook in LOW fire. Stir consistently. Put salt if still needed. Then, add the separated egg yolk into the pasta. Stir. Add some pepper. Your "low calorie" spaghetti alla carbonara is ready. Serve with pecorino or parmesan cheese but ang talagang partner is pecorino cheese. Ewan ko lang kung san meron nun dito sa atin.

Try it para maiba naman dun sa usual creamy carbonara.

Buon appetito!

Unfortunately sis, your recipe isn't authentic.

Real Carbonara uses Guanciale. It's similar to bacon but really full of flavor. Guanciale is like those big leg hams seasoned and air dried. IF there's no Guanciale available, cooks use Pancetta.

Bacon, compared to Pancetta and Guaciale, is really really bland. Some opt to put salt up accent the flavor. But to my taste buds, its still different.

Carbonara also does not have onions. and it uses one WHOLE egg, for one head.

Aside from Guanciale, Pecorino cheese is the next important ingredient imho. It has a milkish flavor. thus giving carbonara a "cream" like taste. Some italian chefs use Parmesan with Pecorino.

It's not dahil gusto nila ng low calorie. It's just that Italians do not use cream. Americans do.

Cream is not common in Italian recipes, but is used in the United States[6][7], France, Spain, the United Kingdom[8], Australia[9]  and Russia (especially in Moscow)[citation needed]. Other Anglo/Franco variations on carbonara may include peas, broccoli or other vegetables added for colour.[7]  Yet another American version includes mushrooms. Many of these preparations have more sauce than the Italian versions.[10]

I'm a carbonara fan. and i love cooking the traditional version.

Here's a carbonara recipe I got from my supervisor. Really easy to make and it doesn't take long. This is for half a kilo of pasta noodles:

2-3 cans evap (tall)
1 cream of mushroom (campbell's)
grated cheese (your call on how much. ako, i like a lot kaya isang block talaga ginagamit ko)
mixed veggies (peas and carrots)
ham (cut into strips)
half a stick of butter

Fry bacon then remove from its oil once brown. Set aside. In bacon oil (reduce if you feel it's too much), add the stick of butter. Once melted, put in the mixed veggies and the strips of ham. Add the cans of evap and the can of campbell's mushroom soup. Add the grated cheese and mix till sauce thickens. You might want to put salt and pepper but i don't anymore, especially the salt kasi andami ko nang cheese na nilalagay. Mince the bacon to make bacon bits.

Cook pasta noodles according to package directions.

Serve by pouring sauce over the pasta, mixing and then sprinkling the top with bacon bits.

I tell you, ang yummy nya! :)

Spaghetti alla Carbonara
serves 6

500g spaghetti noodles
4 fresh large eggs
1 small pack of Swift bacon, cubed
1 pack freshly grated Parmesan
Freshly cracked black pepper
Sea salt

Bring about 6 quarts of generously salted water (it should taste like the ocean) to a boil, add the spaghetti and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon bits and saut for about 3 minutes, or until the meat is crispy and golden and has rendered its fat. Turn off the heat.

In a small bowl whisk the eggs and the cheese until well-combined.

When the pasta is done, reserve 1/2 cup of the water, then drain.

Return the bacon to the pan to medium heat, and add half of the reserved pasta water to the pan. Toss in the spaghetti and agitate the pan over the heat for a few seconds until the bubbling subsides. Much of the water will evaporate.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the egg mixture and stirring quickly until the eggs thicken. The residual heat will cook the eggs but work quickly to prevent the eggs from scrambling. If the sauce seems too thick, thin it out with a little bit more of the reserved pasta water.

Season liberally with freshly cracked black pepper. (Taste for seasoning: depending on the kind of pork used, it may not need any salt.)

Divide the pasta into bowls and serve immediately.
