Now that I have a little baby boy to take care of I really started to appreciate more and more recipes that are done very fast because I just have time to cook between my son’s naps. So, I can’t think about a faster and delicious Italian recipe than carbonara. It is so quick to make because while your pasta is been cooking you will be cooking the bacon. Then when your pasta is done, the bacon will be done too and you will need only about 1 or 2 minutes to cook the eggs. Once the eggs are cooked your dish will be done too.

This isn’t like the traditional carbonara recipe because I added kale. I am a kind of person that always tries to eat some green or some veggies in pretty much all my lunch or dinner meals and especially when I am eating pasta because it makes me feel less guilty I guess 😉

I also think when you add greens in your recipes you are just making them taste much more flavourful, don’t you think? So, if I can give you a suggestion, add kale in your traditional carbonara recipe and you will be surprised by the flavour. I really hope you enjoy this recipe and make this for you and your family this week.

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb. spaghetti
  • 2 cup kale, ribs removed and leaves chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 3 large eggs, beaten with a fork
  • 1/2-1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add spaghetti. When your spaghetti is al dente add the kale and cook it for about 2 minutes. Then, before you drain it, save about a cup of the cooking liquid. After draining it, return the pasta to the warm pot.
  2. Cook the bacon in a skillet and then set it aside.
  3. Pour the eggs over the spaghetti and add the cheese and bacon.
  4. Toss with tongs, adding a little reserved pasta water if you like, until the eggs are cooked, which is about one minute or two.
  5. You don’t need to add all the liquid you saved. It will depend on how liquid you want your sauce to be.
  6. Season with fresh ground black pepper.
