  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon from skillet and set aside, leaving the bacon grease in the pan.
  3. Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook until browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Remove skillet from heat and add cooked spaghetti to the mushrooms and garlic. Toss to combine.
  6. Slowly pour the egg and cheese mixture over the spaghetti, stirring constantly to coat the pasta evenly. The heat from the pasta will cook the eggs, creating a creamy sauce.
  7. Return the skillet to low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the eggs, or they will scramble.
  8. Stir in the cooked bacon and season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
  9. Remove from heat and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
  10. Enjoy your delicious Mushroom and Bacon Carbonara!
