Like our Filipino-style spaghetti and macaroni salad, pasta carbonara is one dish we’ve adapted from the west to suit our Pinoy tastes.
Pasta carbonara in its traditional form is made with pancetta, eggs, and Parmesan cheese along with copious amounts of garlic and fresh parsley. Although cured meat such as bacon or ham is still a core ingredient, this pasta dish has evolved in our local food scene to include cream sauce and mushrooms.
This Filipino-style pasta carbonara is a quick and easy dish you can pull together in no time. It’s easy to make for family dinners yet fancy enough for holiday gatherings. It has a short list of ingredients and is ready in 30 minutes or less.
