Carbonara with mascarpone

serving dumplings | Carbonara-with Mascarpone

This is a great variation of the classic carbonara. I made this one with bacon, dried tomatoes, spinach and a smooth mascarpone sauce. 

preparation time 20 minutes | serves 4


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!!
