How To Cook Spaghetti Carbonara

So since about a week ago, I was really craving for spaghetti carbonara and decided to cook my own simple one which is more cost efficient then eating out and also I can put as much ingredients as I want to as compared to the outside ones where they only give a little amount of ingredients for quite a high price. Because I am kiam like that (in case you didn't know, kiam means stingy).

What you will need:
A can of Prego Carbonara Mushroom sauce,
Half a box / packet of spaghetti (up to your own estimation)
White button mushroom
Yellow onions (you can google it up, mostly used in western food)
1/3 can of water

To garnish:
Grated parmesan cheese
Basil leaves
Black pepper

So... This is how you cook spaghetti carbonara!

1. Fill a large pot with a bottle of water and and some salt for the water to boil and also to give the spaghetti some flavour. When the water starts boiling add in the spaghetti and let it boil till al dente (where the spaghetti is firm but not too hard, which is just right)

2. When the spaghetti is cooked, drain the water away and leave it aside.

3. Now start with the cooking of the carbonara sauce! Heat the pan, add some oil, preferrably healthier alternative of oil, stir fry the green onions first, then the bacon, and then the mushrooms. Lastly, add the can of Prego's mushroom carbonara sauce to the pan. Add 1/3 water if you don't want your sauce to be too thick. Wait for the sauce to simmer and then you are done!

4. Serve your spaghetti on a plate and add the sauce on top! Then if you want, garnish with a little black pepper, basil leaves and parmesan cheese.

Dad ate my spaghetti and said it is better than those shops outside, just because I put a lot of ingredients. Nevertheless, still very happy with what he said!

But then, when I ate my spaghetti, yes, I loved what I cooked.. But it is not the authentic carbonara. Why I said so, because the Prego's sauce sort of taste more to mushroom sauce.

Well, I guess that is enough when you crave for cheaper carbonara alternatives.

Hope you enjoyed my photos and happy eating! Also, feel free to try my spaghetti carbonara recipe.  :)
