  • 8 ounces spaghetti or your preferred pasta

  • 4 slices bacon, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


1. Cook the Pasta:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

  • Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions until al dente.

  • Once cooked, drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Set aside.

2. Prepare the Sauce:

  • In a wok or large skillet, cook the diced bacon over medium heat until crispy and golden brown.

  • Add minced garlic to the bacon and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

3. Make the Creamy Carbonara Sauce:

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, grated Parmesan cheese, and heavy cream until smooth and well combined.

  • Season the mixture with salt and black pepper to taste.

4. Combine Pasta and Sauce:

  • Reduce the heat to low and add the cooked spaghetti to the wok with the bacon and garlic.

  • Pour the creamy carbonara sauce over the pasta and quickly toss to coat, ensuring the pasta is evenly coated in the sauce.

  • If the sauce is too thick, gradually add the reserved pasta water, a little at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.

5. Serve and Garnish:

  • Once the pasta is heated through and the sauce is creamy, remove the wok from the heat.

  • Transfer the creamy carbonara pasta to serving plates.

  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, for a pop of color and freshness.

6. Enjoy Your Creamy Carbonara Pasta Wok Recipe:

  • Serve the creamy carbonara pasta immediately while it's hot.

  • Enjoy the rich and indulgent flavors of this classic Italian dish cooked to perfection in a wok.

Tips for Perfect Creamy Carbonara Pasta:

  • For a traditional touch, you can substitute pancetta for the bacon.

  • Be sure to temper the eggs by slowly adding a small amount of the hot pasta water to the egg mixture while whisking to prevent them from scrambling when combined with the hot pasta.

  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can reduce the amount of pasta water added or increase the amount of grated Parmesan cheese.

  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat gently in the microwave or on the stovetop, adding a splash of cream or milk to revive the creaminess.

Indulge in the creamy goodness of this Creamy Carbonara Pasta Wok Recipe cooked in a wok, perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or a cozy weekend meal with loved ones. Enjoy the simplicity and deliciousness of this classic Italian favorite prepared with a modern twist.
