Fettuccine Carbonara

Fettuccine Carbonara

Super simple dish. Without bacon or any meat. Perfect for those who are abstaining from meat this Lenten season. This pasta dish only has 3 ingredients: eggs, cheese and the fettuccine.  My  kids loved it even without their beloved bacon.  🙂

Mix the eggs and the grated cheese in a bowl.

You may use just Parmigiano- Reggiano (parmesan cheese) or Pecorino cheese. I used both because I love them both happen to have them on hand 🙂

Add the egg mixture to hot pasta and you’re done! How easy is that? And it’s healthy, too.

Happy Cooking! 🙂

Recipe type: Pasta, Main, dinner, lunch
Cuisine: Italian
  • 12 ounces fettuccine
  • 3 small eggs or 2 large eggs
  • 100g grated parmesan and/or Pecorino cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons parsley flakes (optional)
  1. Cook pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.
  2. Place eggs and parmesan/pecorino and parsley flakes in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper then mix gently with a fork.
  3. Drain pasta, then return to pan. Quickly add egg and cheese mixture. Toss to combine - the heat from the pasta will cook the egg slightly and form a creamy sauce.
  4. Serve immediately with extra cheese.

God Bless.
