Pasta Carbonara

Oh hey y'all! 

The past few months have been filled to the brim with schoolwork, jobs, ministry events and travel, leaving this poor little blog in major neglect. It was a good transition to prioritize other things above it, but I am glad that with some recent changes I will have more time to update this space with yummy recipes, daily happenings and lessons from the Lord!

Before I dive into all that the Lord has done since I last posted, I wanted to share this super easy recipe! I made this after being out of town all week, when I had no meal plan and basically just tossed it together. This would be great for a weeknight meal. It's also a great base to add on your favorite veggies or meats- green peas, onion,  mushrooms, prosciutto, or grilled chicken would all make perfect additions!

What You'll Need:
(serves 1)
one serving angel hair pasta
two slices bacon
2 cups spinach 
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
freshly cracked black pepper

What To Do:
Prepare pasta according to package instructions. 

Meanwhile, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon to drain and reserve 2 tbsp of drippings in pan. Add spinach and cook for two minutes or until wilted. Add garlic and continue cooking for one minute. Crumble in the cooked bacon and stir to combine. 

Drain pasta well and add to pan with Parmesan, salt and pepper, stirring to coat all the noodles. Add the egg to the top and stir to coat. (Add a splash of cream for a thicker sauce)

Serve immediately and top with more Parmesan!

  1. I made something similar to this once that included several kinds of meat - it was a huge waste of time, because for all that effort, it wasn't very good. YOUR recipe looks simple AND good! I love having meals that are either ready to warm up or simple to just put together for the days that don't leave much time or energy for cooking.

    Oh and I'm glad you're back too! I'll look forward to updates and recipes!
