    This comes via 500 All Time Great Recipes. Sometimes instead of bacon, I have used leftover ham or bologna sausage. I have also added in leftover peas.

      Creamy rich yumminess. I added a leftover sausage link, diced red onion, minced garlic cloves. Made with 1 pound pasta.

      Simple and yummy pasta carbonara. I did omit the mushrooms, since my daughter doesn't care for them. Instead, I added a bit more bacon! We really loved the flavor. Thank you!

      This is a wonderful Pasta Carbonara. We enjoyed this for lunch over the weekend and my husband kept saying "this is really good" between every bite. I did omit the mushrooms (personal preference) and substituted frozen peas. Made for 1-2-3 Hit tag game.
