Simple Carbonara



  • 400g short pasta of choice (farfalle, penne, fusilli, spirals, etc.)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1⁄2 - 2⁄3 cup (125-190ml) thickened cream
  • 100g freshly grated parmesan, plus extra to serve
  • Salt and pepper


  • 100g sliced prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • Flat leaf parsley Salad


  1. Place pasta into the Pasta Cooker Base and fill with water to the corresponding MAX line. Place into the microwave, uncovered, and cook at 900 watts for 13-15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Remove Cooker from microwave and use the Cover to drain the water. Add olive oil, egg yolks, thickened cream, parmesan and seasoning; mix until well-combined.
  3. Serve with prosciutto pieces, extra parmesan, a sprinkle of parsley and a side of salad.

Tupper Tips:

  • Prosciutto can be substituted with fried pancetta pieces for a more authentic carbonara. Use the Chef SeriesTM Pure Cookware 24cm Frypan to fry the pancetta with 1 tbs olive oil until crispy.
  • For a vegetarian option, substitute the prosciutto with 150g of sautéed mushrooms.
  • Sprinkle toasted pine nuts over pasta for another texture.
