Tortiglioni alla Carbonara

  • 12.06.11

Tortiglioni alla carbonara. A good plate of pasta is always such a welcome dinner at our house. My son loves tomato sauce and only wants tomato sauce with his pasta. On the other hand, I have a liking for sauces. 

It is obvious who won the debate last night as we did enjoy a great plate of Tortiglioni alla Carbonara. 

The bacon is gently cooked with the onion until the onion is translucent. By sweating the onion all the flavor is embedded in the bacon. Adding white wine, not only will scrape the bits of bacon, it will intensify the onion bacon mixture. A must staple on every kitchens.

A nice side salad, vanilla ice cream with a cookie was perfect.

Tonight’s December 5, 2011 dinner:

Tortiglioni alla Carbonara

Green Salad

Vanilla ice Cream with cookie



1 pound of Tortiglioni pasta by Barilla

1 small onion, sliced in small pieces

2 tablespoons of unsalted butter

6 to 8 oz bacon, sliced in small strips ¼ inch wide

½ cup white wine

2 eggs

3 tablespoons of Parmigiano grated fine

Salt and Pepper

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, cook the onions with the butter until the onions are translucent. Add the bacon and the wine. Lower the heat and let it cook for a couple of minutes. In a large serving bowl, beat the 2 eggs with salt (not too much) and the pepper. Add the Parmigiano and incorporate well.

Meanwhile in a large pan, boil the water with salt. Cook the pasta al dente and drain. Immediately pour over the egg mixture and mix well. Add the bacon-onion-wine sauce and mix well. Serve hot.

    I love carbanora style pasta – I grew up with it as a staple at the family-run tiny Italian place 3 streets down from my house. Looks wonderful!

    1. Thank you. I was a staple in my family as well growing up in France/Italy.

  4. I can’t say no to that pasta! Looks so scrumptious…esp. with the bacon!
