Roasted Mushroom & Cauliflower Fettuccine Carbonara Pasta Recipe With Pancetta

If you love cauliflower and mushrooms, you have to try this easy pasta recipe. With tender mushrooms, cauliflower and pancetta, it's a mouth full of flavor.

Roasting the vegetables intensifies the flavor and takes this simple fettuccine recipe up a notch on the flavor scale. Linguine, spaghetti, angel hair or your favorite pasta could be substituted.

Cuisine: American / Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 to 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 to 50 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 - 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 package (8 ounces) mushrooms, cut in half
  • olive oil
  • 8 ounces fettuccine (spaghetti, linguine and angel hair also work well), cooked according to package directions
  • 4 ounces chopped pancetta  
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped Italian flat leaf parsley (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the cauliflower and mushrooms on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven about 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes.
  2. Cook the pancetta in a skillet until crisp. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds.
  3. In a bowl, combine the egg, parsley, grated Parmesan, salt and pepper.
  4. To the skillet with the pancetta, add the egg mixture, pasta, some of the pasta water and roasted cauliflower and mushrooms. Toss gently to combine over low heat. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve with additional grated Parmesan cheese.
