Easy Carbonara!

Hello, and welcome back to my blog!

Today I am going to be showing you possibly the easiest way to make carbonara. You only need three ingredients and it is quick and easy to make! Also a good way to use up bacon if you have any left over.

You will need:

  • Bacon (4 rashers)
  • Pasta (normally I cover the bottom of the pan)
  • Two squares of cheese
  • Salt (to taste)


  • Frying pan
  • Saucepan
  • Spatula
  • Kettle
  • Chopping board
  • Knife


  1. In a saucepan add the pasta and a pinch of salt. Boil some water in a kettle and add to the saucepan. Boil to packet instructions.
  2. In the frying pan fry the bacon until it is just brown. When it is cooked place on a chopping board and cut into small slices.
  3. When the pasta is cooked, drain the water and place the pasta back into the pan. a
  4. Add the slices of cheese and stir until they are melted. Place in a serving bowl and stir in bacon. Season with pepper to taste.

The carbonara is done! Here is a photo of what mine looked like. img_9513


  • You do not need to add salt at the end to season as there is already some in the bacon.
  • If you do not want to use/ do not have any bacon you can always use ham instead!
  • If you boil the water for the pasta in a kettle and then add it to the pan the pasta will cook faster as the water will heat up quicker.

Hope you enjoyed that blog! Next week I will be doing a round up of my first two weeks at university as a year 2 student.

Have a good week!
