I figured buying fresh pasta over standard dried ones is way better; the pasta itself is yummier and even easier to prepare. Takes only 5 minutes or less to cook. Buying bottled carbonara sauce instead of preparing everything from scratch also saves time. I usually buy this creamy Italian-style brand with bacon, fresh cream and eggs. All you need to do is enhance it a bit as I do with more bacon, Parmesan cheese and Italian herbs. YUM!
400g Fresh fettuccine tricolor, cooked in boiling water until aldente
A bottle of Leggos chunky carbonara sauce (about 500g)
Sliced button mushrooms
Italian herbs (oregano, basil & parsley)
Fry garlic in olive oil until fragrant. Add bacon and saute for about 3 minutes. Add onions and mushrooms; season with pepper and Italian herbs and cook for another 2 minutes. Add carbonara sauce, stir in Parmesan cheese and cook over medium heat for about a minute. Serve the sauce over cooked pasta. Sprinkle more Parmesan cheese and Italian herbs.
Lasang Pinoy, Sundays. Saucy!
