Spaghetti Carbonara

This is not really a carbonara, but it's close enough, and very tasty.

Essential ingredients

  • 250g Pasta
  • ½ packet of bacon or cooked ham
  • 1 sachet mushroom cup-soup, or 1 small tin mushroom soup
  • A little oil
  • ½ cup of water

Optional ingredients

  • Some mushrooms
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • A bit of cheese - grated or finely chopped
  • ½ tsp dried garlic (or as much as you like)
  • Basil
  • Black Pepper


Cook the pasta, drain it and put it aside - a clean carrier bag is fine! Fry the bacon, onion and mushrooms for a few minutes. Add the water, garlic and herbs and then the soup powder, stirring throroughly. Heat and simmer briefly to reduce to a cream-like consistency. Add the cooked pasta, the grated cheese and some black pepper and stir well. Season and serve.
