Spiral Pasta In Carbonara White Sauce

It's been a while I stopped posting home-cooked meal. Now, I'm back to cooking again after the house renovation completed. :)

Today's recipe is on spiral pasta. Normally I use spiral pasta in either fruits & veggie pasta salad or pasta with meat balls in tomato sauce. This time, I make an attempt to cook in different way. So, I came out with an idea to cook spiral pasta in Carbonara white sauce. Ingredients wise, I just add whatever I have in my fridge. Although it is just an ordinary pasta, but the combination is just nice.

Spiral Pasta In Carbonara White Sauce
Serves 2


Spiral pasta, qty for 2
1 can of Prego Carbonara White Sauce
2 mushroom chicken sausages, coursely sliced
6 big button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 medium size onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
Some broccoli, cut into florets
Some cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
Some water
Salt to taste


1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook spiral pasta as per packaging instruction. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

2. Boil broccoli and cauliflower in another pot of boiling water. Drain and set aside.

3. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a pan. Stir fry onion till fragrant.

4. Add sausages, and saute till it turns golden brown.
