Penne Carbonara

Besides rice, pasta is my second love when it comes to food. But I don't like preparing pasta meals that will take much of my time and at the end I will not enjoy. I would rather stick on the idea of cooking pasta dishes in a matter of 15 minutes.

You may find this recipe different from the Italian dish you probably know. I do not use egg in this recipe because I do not like the texture of the sauce with egg on it. But it's up to you as traditionally, it should have one. 



300 grams penne pasta (or spaghetti)
150 grams unsmoked bacon (rashers) (chopped into small pieces)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
250ml Double cream
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions:

The idea of cooking this meal is so simple. In a pot with boiling water, add salt and teaspoon of cooking oil then put in the penne pasta. Cook the pasta depending on the instructions in the packaging. 

Meanwhile, using a sauce pan, put the stove in medium heat, sauté garlic and chopped rashers in olive oil for about 4-5 minutes. Stir in the double cream and parmesan cheese. Lower the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. You may wish to add a little milk to make the sauce a little runny. It really depends on your preference. 

Finally, mix the pasta into the sauce. Best served with grated parmesan.
