If you look on page 30 of Donna Hay’s Off The Shelf: Cooking from the Pantry you will see the recipe for baked carbonara. She lists it as ‘short order’. Presumably because it is quick. And it is. By the time the sauce is put together the pasta is al dente and ready to be mixed with some nice crispy bacon. What you end up with after baking the mixture for 30 minutes is….
…which you use as a main or a side. Either way, it is GOOD. And it was my pick for this week’s Donna Hay Wednesday. I only made 1/2 of the recipe and we ate it as a side. The cream, milk, egg, and Parm cheese all comes together resulting in a creamy pasta.
I would not change anything except instead of just pouring the cream/milk/egg mixture over the pasta I would mix it all up in larger bowl with the the bacon and then put it into the baking dish. Good Stuff Y’all.
