A great pasta dish to use up leftover ham. It’s even more delicious when it’s baked in the oven.

  • My partner makes something similar to this but with tasty prosciutto fried instead of ham. We like a stronger flavour.

  • Good recipe but I’ll stick to using my regular bacon. I also like to add mushrooms and occasionally chicken

  • I have been looking for a good carbonara recipe. I think the kids will love this. Also love that it can be done in one pan. Thanks.

  • Hmm I’m 14 weeks pregnant…if the ham is heated through a dish like this, I wonder if that’s safe or if I should avoid it altogether for now…it looks like such a delicious dish though! Maybe cooked bacon may be a good alternative :)

  • We love Carbonara in our house, it’s my teen son’s favourite. It is one of the more fattening pasta sauces to eat, so I use light cream and light ham. Still great flavour.
