Let's talk about food #6 - Easy-peasy Bacon and Mushroom Carbonara
Bacon and Mushroom Carbonara!!! The very easy version hahahaha.
Trust me, it tastes so legit I think it can be sold in restaurants LOL #SelfPraise
I have no idea how the usual carbonara is made, maybe it's already very easy on its own but I tried searching for some carbonara recipes and they sound/look really complicated haha so I decided to try it this way!!!
I am not a fan of cream-based pasta though, but somehow I was craving for it so I decided to cook it!!!
I'm using this Hello Kitty Pasta I got from Japan. You can use any other you prefer, like penne!!
What I used:
Hello Kitty Pasta
Campbell Cream of Mushroom
Bacon (Diced or sliced)
Button Mushroom (Sliced)
Breakfast Ham (Diced)
Sounds like a lot of ingredients but they are just really basic, you can make do without ham actually!
And you can buy diced garlic at the groceries store, we don't have those at home so...
Also canned soup is the best invention on earth HAHA #ILoveYouCampbell #NotAnAd LOL
I forgot to prepare my mushrooms so I only added them later on. #Amateur HAHAHA
AND I cooked my pasta first in another pot for around 9 min~
So yeap I didn't get to snap pictures because being an amateur cook like me I was being very panicky with every step HAHAHA, I threw in bacon first, cooked for a bit and threw in garlic, then onion.
After that I put in half can of Cream of Mushroom, added milk and mixed them in LOW HEAT. Important 'cause it will be very clumpy and gross if it's not low heat. Mom told me HAHAHA.
You can put it to medium heat after the condensed soup is dissolved!
The milk and condensed soup proportion should be around 1.5:1 so it will not be too thick, but really depends on how thick you want it to be! Milk will thicken in the heat anyway.
I read online somewhere that if you add milk later on, it will preserve the milk's taste so I added more milk near the end hahaha.
TAADAAAAA!!! Oh and remember to put some salt and pepper to taste~~
I can't tell you the exact measurements of the ingredients 'cause it was really just.... very anyhow HAHA I just guessed my way through!
Anyway I think I used about 150g of pasta, along with 2 slices of ham, 2 slices of bacon, half a can of cream of mushroom and almost 3/4 of the carton of 500ml milk~~
Decided to put some Parmesan Cheese at the end!!!
AND it's ready to serve!!!
Admit it, it looks damn good HAHAHA are you impressed ;)
That's all for today's Let's Talk About Food which is way more complicated than the usual 3-steps recipes I post hahaha!
Thanks for reading~~~
