How to make your own dog food: Recipe 3

Pasta Carbonara for Dogs
By: Chef Cristian Feher

Doggie Pasta Carbonara!
We all love Italian food and your dog is no exception. This dish was enjoyed most sumptuously by my grandparent’s Great Dane, Dutchess! You can substitute the regular wheat pasta with Tinkayada brown rice pasta if your dog has gluten allergies.

Normally, you should feed your dog 2% of its body weight per day. That figure should help you plan how much food to make your dog. 

- 4 cups of pasta (cooked)
- 1 cup of chopped kale (raw)
- 1 cup of chopped carrots (raw)
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- 2 cups of cooked ground meat (beef, chicken, lamb, turkey)
- 2 eggs
- 2 strips of nitrate-free applewood smoked organic bacon
- 1/4 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
- A pinch of sea salt


1. Cook the pasta and set aside. You will serve at room temperature.

2. Cook the bacon crispy, cool, and chop into bits.

3. Chop the kale and carrots with a knife or food processor.

4. Mince the garlic.

5. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with two raw eggs, and add a pinch of salt. Your dog will love this. And if they don’t.. you will!

  1. That is a very delicious recipe. And healthy too! I admire the amount of vegetables you add on to it. It is good for your dog's health because of the nutrients they can get from it. As much as possible, we should avoid commercialized dog food because of the additives and preservatives that will harm our dogs. These chemicals can cause/trigger allergies in them and gives them major discomfort.
