a beautiful carbonara dinner.

Last week, I cooked dinner! I've been getting into this a bit more by making dinner for the fam at least once a week for the past few weeks so starting to make it a usual thing to do which is good. (: A little while ago, I went over to have dinner with a good friend of mine at a house she was house-sitting for a co-worker. She did most of the cooking (but I did help a little!) and made us a beautiful carbonara pasta dish! It was delicious! And I was surprised at how easy it was to whip up, so I decided to have a go and try make it for the family! Didn't have a recipe or anything to follow so just winged it. Here's a quick run down of how it went...

Chopped the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces.
 Thoroughly cooked the chicken first. 
Had the veggies pre-chopped. Spring onion, capsicum and mushroom.
Also had bacon chopped up and cooked in a separate pan. The mushrooms were then added to the bacon.
Started cooking the pasta. (Chicken and basil tortellini!)
Added the cooked bacon and mushroom to the chicken and other veggies.
The pre-made sauce I used: Delmaine Carbonara Pasta Sauce. Very delish. ;)
Put the sauce into the pan and stirred until ingredients had mixed together. Added a handful of spinach leaves.
 Stirred until the leaves had wilted and become soft.
 Chucked in a handful of cheese to add even more flavour.
 Stirred around until cheese was melted through.
 Added the cooked pasta to the rest of the ingredients...

And ta-da! A mouth-watering, quick and easily pasta dish which was very tasty and filling! Will definitely be keen to make this dish again sometime in the future! :D How about giving it a go yourself if you like to cook? Go on, I know you want to... ;)
