Recipe: Tuna Carbonara


Overdue na tong recipe na to. I cooked this for my parent's anniversary. First time ko actually lutuin to. I got this from a friend. Birthday nya nung hinanda nya to last February tas kunulit ko cya sa recipe. After mga 3 months tsaka nya lang binigay kasi hiningi naman nya yung recipe ko ng uber sarap na coffee jelly.Di naman ako na disappoint nung niluto ko kasi exactly the same taste nung sa friend ko and the whole family liked it.Yehey!I paired it with another recipe ko na Chicken Ala King over French bread.

Ingredients: For a 1 to 1 & ½ kg Pasta

1 Kg Pasta cook according to package direction
3 cans of Tuna
1 cup of bacon (alternate: ham)
2 & ½ cups of all purpose cream
3 cups of Evaporated Milk
1 brick of Grated Cheddar Cheese (reserve some for topping)
½ brick of butter or less
1 pack of cream of mushroop soup (Knorr preferably) dissolved in 1 cup of lukewarm water
1 cup of Sliced Button Mushroom
1 Medium size white or brown onion chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 to 2 tablespoon of flour dissolved in water (for thickening)
A pinch of nutmeg (optional)
Salt
White Pepper


Procedure:

1. Melt the butter and stir in the chopped onion for 2 to 3 minutes or until translucent. Cook in low fire to avoid burning
2. Add mushroom and cook for 3 minutes.
3. Then add the bacon and the tuna and cook for another 3 minutes.
4. Add the cream of mushroom, evaporated milk and all purpose crea. Stir continuously until it boils.
5. Put the cheddar cheese, nutmeg and garlic powder.
6. Pag fully melted na yung cheese, you can adjust the seasoning by adding salt and pepper. Siguro naman alam nyo kung ano lasa ng carbonara not unless dukha kayo.(Joke lang!)
7. Top it over the pasta with some grated cheese and serve with love!

Happy eating!
