The Egg Guy’s ‘Easy Carbonara’

Is it normal to feel hungry just by looking at recipes? What if it's 10pm? :)

And to make it even better, skip the bacon and replace with fresh steamed NZ mussels. Yeah.

@T.T, I am totally with you, I feel so hungry after looking at recipes be it savoury or sweet and it is nearly midnight!


Well you can't really get much easier than this! I do something similar but use only one egg and add half a cup of cream or sour cream to the mix. One thing to note if you are cooking this recipe. Don't put the pot back on the heat or you end up with pasta with lumpy scrambled eggs instead of a lovely creamy coating.


I made this for dinner tonight, it really is as yummy as it sounds, the kids actually sat at the table and ate all thier dinner without moaning once! Will definitely cook it again, :-)


This sounds really tasty while being reasonably simple - wish my chooks would lay more eggs though - I'd be hard pushed to have five at any one time!


Lost for dinner ideas, but think I will make this tonight, it will go down a treat


Perfect, I'm another who is going to give this a go tonight. We don't have parmesan, only mozzarella so I'm not going to get quite as flavoursome taste but it'll be lovely and stringy. Will equates to messy and fun for my daughter!!!


This is a wonderful and easy way to make the food you love without all the hassle


Thank you for posting this recipe! I just made it today for tea and it was fabulous! It is an easy and fail-proof dish and very economical and quick to make. Great with a salad on the side for a hearty and nutritious meal and way cheaper than eating out. Perfect when you are looking for an easy meal after work or when you are at uni. Might add some prawns next time and see how that goes. And yes at T T, I too feel so hungry after looking at recipes! Cooking shows make me even more hungry!


The Egg Guy's Easy Carbonara so yummy and yet so easy to prepare, mouth watering meal, you want to have more... Cheers!


Sounds so easy that my hubby could manage this, guess what i will be having for dinner tomorrow night! Simple, looks good, and i am sure tastes even better.
