Spaghetti alla carbonara is one of those dishes that you want to eat EVERY.SINGLE.DAY but you really shouldn’t but you totally could but you really shouldn’t but…
you get it.
So, i’ll be honest, the idea of raw egg being stirred into your pasta and not knowing it’s “cooked” is frightening, but i took the risk and it was totally worth it. no tummy aches. no long hours in the oval office. just a belly full of happy.
My version is not like the others you’ll find on the internet, at least not from what I’ve seen, so really maybe i shouldn’t call it spaghetti alla carbonara – but whatever, it’s close enough.
The most important thing about making this is the technique…DO NOT let your eggs become scrambled.
Half Small Onion, diced
Teaspoon of Garlic, minced
6-7 slices of bacon, diced
Egg, whisked well
Coat a pan with olive oil and cook your bacon until just about crispy…add onion and continue cooking until opaque & bacon is crispy…add garlic, be sure not to burn! After your onion, bacon and garlic is cooked, take it off the heat.
Whisk egg, parmesan, black pepper together till mixture is homogenous
Add cooked pasta to the onion/bacon/garlic and mix well – take egg/parmesan/black pepper mixture and toss into the hot pasta/onion/bacon/garlic mixture – mixing continuously until well coated and looks creamy.
Top with a little extra parmesan and black pepper if you wish.
Enjoy. every. single. bite. !!!
