Recipe: Something like Carbonara

Found some pictures from a little while back, when I cooked something “Inspired by” Carbonara. Basically, wanted to cook pasta, and I used whatever I had in my fridge (as always) and hoping for the best.
It turned out not too bad. I could have a little more salt or bacon, but over all it was pretty good.

Ingredients

  • Onion (1/2 of medium one – that’s all I had…)
  • Mushroom (a handful)
  • Bacon (as much as you want!)
  • Cheese (I used habanero cheese, but any shredded cheese should work)
  • (Fake) Egg (the cholesterol free one in a cup)
  • Pasta
  • Salt / Pepper

Directions

  1. Slice Onion, Mushroom and chop bacon

  4. At this point start cooking pasta (we used angel hair, but if you are using paster it takes longer, you may start cooking pasta earlier)IMG_1077
  5. When the pasta is about to be ready remove the sauce pan off the heat, put cheese and egg in to the pan
