Spaghetti alla Carbonara
Preparation time: 20 minutes
1 lb. spaghetti
3 XL pasturized eggs*
1 Tbsp. heavy cream
1 1/2 cups lean bacon cut in cubes
2 Tbsp. fresh grated parmesan
salt and black pepper
1. In a large nonstick skillet cook the bacon just
enough to melt the fat but not so much that it becomes
crispy. If the bacon is fat drain of the excess grease.
2. In the mean time prepare the spaghetti as directed.
Don't put too much salt in the water because the bacon
itself is already salty.
3. In a bowl add the eggs, the heavy cream, the parmesan
1 pinch of salt and a good pinch of pepper. Beat all
the ingredients with a fork until well mixed.
4. When the pasta is ready add it to the bacon, the
skillet should be still
warm. Quickly add also the eggs mixture and mix until
well coated. Be careful not to cook the eggs, the
sauce should be creamy.
5. Serve immediately.
