Macaroni in Carbonara Sauce

My first recipe in this blog! :) Yeah, this is the first time I'm posting on what I cook. I've never posted any. So, here's one. This is a very very easy dish. Carbonara has been very easy. :P

I was hunger for carbonara one find morning (I know I shouldn't~!) so I take out all my stuffs out to cook. And I found out that I ran out of spaghetti. All I left was half a packet of macaroni in the shelve, so I have to use that.

I know macaroni was supposed to be cooked in "macaroni and cheese" style, but err...LOL. So, what have I used to cook this meal?


3/4 cup of Macaroni (You can use any type of pastas, and you can adjust the amount of pasta you want)
1 egg
1 teaspoon of oil (Olive oil will be better)
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 Ayamas Cheese sausage, sliced (Usually I and everyone use slices bacon, but I don't have any in the fridge)
1/2 cup and 2 tablespoon of Cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Ground black pepper to taste
Salt to taste


1) Put macaroni/any pasta into a pot of boiling water with salt (Usually everyone do as what the packet has instructed) :P
2) Heat up a frying pan, and pour in the oil.
3) Then add in the garlic. Fry until fragrant, not brown.

4) Add in the sliced sausage.

5) In a bowl, add in the cream, cheese and egg and mix them well.
6) Drain the pasta up once they're ready.
7) Add the pasta into the pan which contains the garlic and sausage.
8) Pour in the mixture of cream, cheese, and egg and toss them over low heat. Do not overcook them as the egg will scramble.
9) Finally add in salt and pepper to taste.

Tadaaa~~~ My breakfast is ready! Hmm, though it doesn't taste as nice as when there's bacon in it I'm still fine with it. I'm craving for a carbonara so, no matter how I must have one no matter how not original the carbonara is. :P
