Bacon and Egg Pasta (Schinken Noodle)

I had so much sun during the day yesterday so I was a bit tired at night. My husband offered to cook for us and this is what he made. This is a pasta dish we make quite often because it is very simply, easy to make, you need only a few ingredients and it always taste good. 

I learned this dish from my husband. It is just with bacon and egg. I heard that they call this "Schinken Noodle" in Germany. Anyhow, when you don't have time or don't have energy to cook complicated meal, I recommend to try this one. 

Here is the recipe. (My husband's recipe)

For 2 people

Rotini Pasta   about 250g
Bacon             5 slices (cut into pieces)
Egg                 2
Salt                little bit
Black pepper   little bit

1. First, boil pasta until al dente.
2. Meanwhile, fry bacon in a frying pan until crispy. 
3. Add boiled pasta to the frying pan. 
4. Crack eggs in a small bowl and mix them well. 
5. Add eggs into the frying pan. 
6. Add salt and pepper 
7. Enjoy!

This is it. Isn't it so easy? I think Kids also will love this dish. I recommend adding some salad on the side since this dish does not have any vegetables. Please try it and let me know how it was. This is a perfect dish for a busy week night or when you don't have much energy to cook.

Also, if you want to make it richer, add some butter for more flavor.

  4. Hi Sissa. Thanks!
    Pasta alla carbonara is a creamy pasta dish, right? I love it with Spaghetti!
    This one which my husband always make is more like bacon and scrambled egg pasta. Not really creamy. That's why I call it Bacon and Egg Noodle (Schinken noodle). But I love creamy Pasta alla Carbonara also!

    I am so excited to try it in Italy. We are planning to go to northern italy such as Venice, Verona etc. Is it possible to have Pasta alla Carbonara in Northern Italy? I really hope so!
