Gluten Free – Pasta Carbonara

You would be surprised, but these Gluten free pasta carbonara are really delicious! There are several companies quite popular for selling gluten-free pastas in the US, and some of theme are: Barilla, Ancient Harvest, Tinkyada, Jovial, Banza, Ronzoni, DeLallo, Explore Cuisine, Glutenfreeda or Trader Joe’s. Just be sure you check the label. Anyway, back to our recipe:


  • 12 ounces (340g) gluten-free pasta (such as rice or corn pasta)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces (225g) gluten-free pancetta or bacon, diced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup (about 100g) grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Cook the Gluten-Free Pasta:
    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the gluten-free pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Reserve about 1 cup of pasta cooking water before draining.
  2. Prepare the Sauce:
    • While the pasta is cooking, whisk together the eggs, grated Pecorino Romano cheese, minced garlic, and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cook the Pancetta or Bacon:
    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced pancetta or bacon and cook until crispy.
  4. Combine Pasta and Sauce:
    • Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to the skillet with the crispy pancetta or bacon. Toss to combine, ensuring the pasta is well-coated in the rendered fat.
  5. Add the Egg Mixture:
    • Remove the skillet from heat. Quickly pour the egg and cheese mixture over the pasta, tossing continuously to create a creamy sauce. The heat from the pasta will cook the eggs, creating a rich and silky texture. If needed, add reserved pasta cooking water a little at a time to achieve the desired consistency.
  6. Serve Immediately:
    • Garnish with additional black pepper and chopped fresh parsley.
