A pasta carbonara made in a non-traditional way: tasty yet without the heavy cream



  • 1 lb dry pasta (we used orecchiette)
  • 1 C frozen green peas
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 TBSP flour
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/2 C freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil pasta according to directions on box
  2. While pasta is cooking, dice bacon up into 1/4" inch pieces and sauté in large skillet along with the garlic.
  3. Sauté until bacon is crisp.
  4. Add flour. Stir and cook for 1 minute over medium heat
  5. Add milk and peas (while frozen) and cook until milk thickens (about 4 minutes).
  6. When pasta has finished cooking, drain well and add to skillet with bacon mixture. Mix well over low heat.
  7. In a small bowl, beat the eggs until scrambled.
  8. Pour eggs over pasta and mix and stir regularly until eggs have cooked. You will see pieces of scrambled eggs. That is what you want.
  9. Turn heat off and mix in parmesan cheese, butter, and salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve with your favorite white wine.
