This is a great variation of the classic carbonara. I made this one with bacon, dried tomatoes, spinach and a smooth mascarpone sauce.
- 500 g tagliatelle
- 300 g mascarpone
- 400 g fresh spinach
- 100 g chopped sun-dried tomatoes
- 200 g bacon
- 4 eggs
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

Cook the tagliatelle in salted water.
In the meantime, cut the bacon into cubes and fry in a hot pan with olive oil. Add the chopped shallot and garlic and bake for 5 minutes on low heat. Then add the spinach, stir and cook until the leaves are tender.
In a bowl, mix the mascarpone with the eggs, season with salt and plenty of pepper. Pour this into the pan with the bacon and simmer another 5 minutes. At the end add the dried tomatoes and pasta.
Arrange on plates and serve hot. Enjoy!!
Just don’t call it that way because it has nothing to do with a Carbonara!
Just tried it. Big hit for the family.
Thank you, I’m so happy you enjoyed it!
