How long can carbonara stay in the fridge at home?

About 5 days is the maximum carbonara can stay in the fridge at home, if you want to keep it for a longer duration it is best to keep it in a sealed back and put it in a freezer so the cream doesn't break down.


Is carbonara vegetarian or non-vegetarian, can it be made vegetarian?

Carbonara is normally a non-vegetarian dish as it involves both bacon and raw egg yolk at the end to make it a bit more creamy but you can surely add peas and broccoli instead as it can be a better supplement for vegetarian individuals.





Carbonara is a classic Italian pasta dish that is easy to make at home with just a few simple ingredients. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make carbonara at home easily:


Ingredients:

  • Spaghetti or bucatini

  • Guanciale, pancetta, or bacon

  • Eggs

  • Parmesan cheese

  • Salt and pepper

Instructions:

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until it is al dente.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, cut the guanciale, pancetta, or bacon into small pieces and cook it in a pan until it is crispy.

  3. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and Parmesan cheese until they are well combined.

  4. When the pasta is done, reserve a cup of the pasta water and drain the rest.

  5. Add the hot pasta to the pan with the cooked guanciale, pancetta, or bacon and toss to combine.

  6. Remove the pan from the heat and add the egg and Parmesan mixture to the pasta, stirring quickly to coat the pasta evenly.

  7. If the sauce is too thick, add some of the reserved pasta water to thin it out.

  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Some tips to keep in mind when making carbonara:

  • Use the right type of pasta, such as spaghetti or bucatini, to ensure that the sauce coats the pasta evenly.

  • Cook the guanciale, pancetta, or bacon until it is crispy to add texture and flavor to the dish.

  • Whisk the egg and Parmesan mixture together well to create a creamy sauce.

  • Add the egg and Parmesan mixture to the pasta off the heat to prevent the eggs from scrambling.
