How To Make Carbonara Pasta? 

  1. To start with this cheese pasta, take a pan or heavy bottom utensil, boil plenty of water, add pasta, salt, and a little olive oil (to remove the stickiness). Boil the pasta to 90 % for 15-20 minutes. Once it is done, drain it and reserve some of the cooking water. 
  2. Take a large pan or saucepan, heat some olive oil, and fry the chicken bacon/chicken salami till it turns crispy. Keep aside. 
  3. Now in a mixing bowl, break the eggs and beat the whole eggs. Mix grated cheese and set aside. 
  4. In the same saucepan, heat some butter and olive oil. Add crushed, minced garlic; saute this for seconds. Add boiled pasta and toss with the egg cheese mixture. Stir it till it is entirely mixed or coated. 
  5. Add fried bacon, seasoned with salt and black pepper, and little pasta water. 
  6. Give a quick toss, make sure that individual pasta strands are coated well properly with the cheese sauce. 
  7. The sauce should have a creamy texture, now remove right away from the heat. 
  8. Add some Italian seasoning and chopped parsley. 

Your carbonara pasta is ready, served hot with grated cheese and a little seasoning.
