Hi friends, I hope you’re hungry! Because this pasta dish here is one of my very favorite dinners in the world. Pasta carbonara is an Italian classic – it originated in Rome, and has found a very happy home in my heart. 🙂 Seriously, though. Let’s talk specifics.

It all starts with fatty, salty, rich bacon, cooked up in a skillet until crispy. The meat is tossed with hot spaghetti, grated parmesan, and fresh eggs. And magic! The steam alone cooks up the eggs into a smooth and creamy sauce – a sauce that’s rich with bacon flavor and perfectly coats each strand of pasta. Finish it all off with a bunch of freshly ground black pepper and you’ve got such a quick and hearty bowl of deliciousness.

My mom used to make this pasta all the time when we were growing up, and now that I’ve got a kitchen of my own, I’m happily following suit. What I love most about carbonara is that it feels so simple – literally, only four ingredients – but the taste is undeniably comforting. This is the dish I turn to whenever I need something warm and homey. Whenever I need a hearty and satisfying dinner without too much effort, and whenever I’m craving some simple indulgence. I hope you love this easy pasta carbonara as much as I do!
