EASY Spaghetti Carbonara

One of my daughters has a huge crush on Fettichini Alfredo...she absolutly adores it. I don't make it very often, and since she is now away to college I never make it. The rest of us enjoy the delicious italian dish too...but I save it for those special times when she comes home. I made this Spaghetti Carbonara recipe the other night and thought of her because it tastes a lot like Alfredo...but it's so much quicker and easier to make. Its rich and flavorful and satisfies that yummy creamy italian flavor that we all crave sometimes.
Its dinner, made EASY!

EASY Spaghetti Carbonara

16 oz. box of spaghetti noodles (cook according to package instructions)
1 lb. cooked bacon
2 T. butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 c. heavy cream
7 T. grated parmesan cheese
fresh parsley (optional)
fresh grated parmesan cheese

Cut bacon into small pieces, cook and set aside. In a skillet combine butter and minced garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add cream and parmesan cheese, stirring constantly with a wire whip until sauce is thick (that will only take a few minutes). Serve individually on separate plates. Top spaghetti noodles with desired amount of sauce and crumbled bacon, sprinkle a small amount of freshly grated parmesan cheese and parsley on top.



  1. Can't wait to try it. This looks so DELISH!!!!

  2. I wonder what makes this different from alfredo... many of the alfredo recipes I've seen have these same ingredients. Looks good!
