A woman has revealed how she whipped up the ‘perfect’ pasta carbonara in her slow cooker – and it’s so easy to make it can be cooked while you do a day of work.
The home cook, from Australia, said made the carbonara after getting together the ingredients, chopping and leaving them in the slow cooker on a low heat for four hours.
‘I jumped on the carbonara bandwagon today after seeing everyone say how good it is and now I know why… it’s amazing!’ she wrote on Facebook.
‘Wish I had tried it sooner!’

While the woman said she was a ‘little worried’ about cooking pasta in the slow cooker, by following a specific recipe it turned out ‘perfectly’.
She even said she got ‘crispy’ bacon and ‘plenty of sauce’ from cooking it this way.
To make the pasta carbonara, the woman recommended you add the chicken, onion, bacon, garlic, mushrooms and a stock cube into the slow cooker.
Cook it on low for four hours, before adding the pasta and cooking it on high for a further one and a half hours.

This isn’t the first time a recipe for the slow cooker has gone viral.
Earlier this year, Ara, from New Zealand, said she had a perfectly cooked English breakfast after she left it in the slow cooker pot to gently braise at a very low temperature between 11pm and 8am.
The clever idea came to mind when she spotted the easy-to-follow recipe in a slow cooker Facebook group – and so she decided to give it a go.
‘Been meaning to try it for ages. Verdict: Best idea ever! This will be us every big breakfast morning. Thank you to whoever it was that discovered it,’ she said.

Sharing a picture of the raw ingredients, Ara used mugs to separate each element, including the baked beans, hash browns, and the mushroom and garlic sauce.
She placed the sausages and neatly wrapped bacon around the edges of the pot so they crisp up by the morning.
‘Place all breakfast ingredients in the slow cooker and sausages along the sides so they crisp up,’ Ara said.
‘Put saucy stuff like baked beans and mushrooms into individual cups so they don’t end up a big mash.’
For the mushroom sauce, she added garlic, butter and a ‘dash of cream’ to the mug.
‘In the morning, I put them on the stove top to thicken the sauce,’ she said.
