  • 21 ounces all-purpose cream
  • 5 cloves garlic minced

  1. The first thing you need to do is to cook the pasta. Preheat a large pot with oil to prevent from sticking together and salt and once reaches the boiling point put the pasta and stir it often until cooked for 8-12 minutes. Check the pasta if it’s done by tasting it. It should be tender all the way through. Once done save a ½ cup of pasta water set aside and transfer the cooked pasta into the strainer and let it drained for a while. 
  2. For carbonara sauce, preheat a large pan and start cooking the pancetta until golden brown and crispy texture. Once done, transfer the pancetta to a clean bowl and set aside. In a large pan where you cooked the pancetta, add the garlic and saute it until golden brown. Also, add mushroom and cook it for 2-3 minutes. Pour the all-purpose cream in the large pan and stir and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add parmesan cheese, pasta water, and half of the pancetta into the pan. Stir it until smooth. 
  3. For preparation, place some pasta on a plate/bowl then pour the carbonara sauce on top of the pasta and garnish it with parsley, parmesan cheese, and crispy pancetta.
