Mob's Easy Carbonara Recipes
This dish just makes sense - chorizo is an epic alternative Guanciale (cured pork cheek - traditional ingredient in Carbonara). Lemon juice lifts at the end.
Lemony Mushroom Carbonara
This twist on a classic carbonara is an absolute delight. We swap out guanciale for mushrooms for an umami hit - they pair amazingly with the lemon and herbs.

MOB's take on a classic. Absolutely no cream anywhere near this dish. Pepper, smoked bacon, egg yolk, parmesan & pasta water. Stuff dreams are made of.
Chargrilled Asparagus Carbonara
A tasty twist on the traditional carbonara.
Parma Ham Carbonara
When you fry Parma ham, the flavour completely changes. It is saltier and nuttier; the perfect thing to add to a carbonara.
Mob's Orzo Carbonara
Pairing the best pasta with the best sauce, it was always gonna work. An absolute belter of a dish. And it only takes 15 minutes.
Butter Bean Carbonara
Ordinarily, I’d say that substituting pasta for beans is criminal but in this case, it really works! The garlicky asparagus gives it a lovely, springy twist.
Anchovy and Caper Carbonara
A new take on the classic carbonara. We've subbed anchovies in for the bacon and it works an absolute treat. Deeply savoury. The ultimate pescatarian pasta.
Zero Waste Veggie Carbonara
A proper vegetarian carbonara made to help reduce food waste. The thyme and lemon zest bring the zestiest kick that works perfectly with the creamy pasta.
All the flavours of a carbonara in crisp and refreshing salad form. Fried spaghetti croutons are going to change your life. Or, at the very least, your dinner.
