Are you looking for something relatively simple to feed your family for dinner? Are you looking for something that is "fancy" enough to serve at your next dinner party? Well, why not try the delicious flavor of carbonara? Carbonara sauce is typically made from bacon, cheese, eggs, cream, and black pepper.
Try the following recipe:
1 pound of your favorite pasta (spaghetti, penne, bowtie, etc.)
8 slices of thick cut bacon
freshly ground pepper
3 large eggs
3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup half & half
salt to taste
Prepare a large pot of water and bring to a boil.
In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, until
crisp. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
Salt the boiling water generously and add some of the
bacon grease to the water to flavor. Add the pasta and
cook until al dente.
In a mixing bowl, mix together eggs, Parmesan cheese,
and half & half.
Drain the pasta, leaving a little of the water clinging to it,
and quickly add the hot pasta to the egg mixture. Crumble
the bacon and season with salt and pepper, tossing to coat
the pasta well.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
Great served with garlic bread and your favorite salad!
