This browned butter spaghetti carbonara recipe tastes fancy and indulgent, but it will take you less than 20 minutes to put together, making it an easy weeknight meal.
Hello bacon lovers! I’ve made you another beautiful bacon recipe for bacon month. This spaghetti carbonara relies on assembly of previous recipes of mine.
In Monday’s post for balsamic bacon onion relish, I suggested that you make up a big batch because I’d be using it in other recipes. This post is proof that I didn’t lie.
If you followed my advice and you have a jar of it in your fridge right now, give yourself a gold star! If you didn’t make any yet, I still adore you, but click here to print off the recipe for the relish. No worries, I’ll wait for you. In the mean time, wanna see our beautiful #baconmonth logo?
OK, so the bacon relish is ingredient numero uno. The second ingredient you’ll need is cooked spaghetti noodles, or a pasta shape of your choice. Want fusilli carbonara? Go for it! If rotini noodles are more your style, pop those twirlies into the boiling water and get ready to toss them into some browned butter. <—- Uh huh, you read that correctly.
My version of spaghetti carbonara calls for bacon, caramelized onions, and browned butter. I said it’s fancy and indulgent and gosh darned it, indulgent food calls for calories and fat! Sometimes you just have to live it up. What a better time to live it up than during #baconmonth, right? #PutSomePigInIt and put some browned butter in it, too!
It has a nutty taste that will glide across your tongue and make you want to do a happy dance!

The 4th and final ingredient needed for this spaghetti carbonara recipe is freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Pull out ye grater and get get your shred on!
This spaghetti carbonara is best served along side some homemade garlic rolls or biscuits and a delicious garden salad. If for no other reason, serve the salad so that there’ll be a tinge of green and healthy goodness along with the bacon and butter naughtiness.
