spaghetti carbonara

spaghetti carbonara

We don't eat a lot of pasta around here but how can you not eat want to slurp this up?

Spaghetti, cheese, bacon, eggs... mmmmmmm.... I can feel the notch on my belt needing expanding.

Does it count as healthy if it's whole wheat spaghetti?

Yeah... I didn't think so :)


spaghetti carbonara
serves 4

12 oz spaghetti
6 salami, cut up in small pieces (typically use bacon or pancetta)
4 egg
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

Cook spaghetti as per directions on box. Drain, leave in colander.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Cook diced salami for about 5 minutes or until slightly crisp in the pot used for boiling the spaghetti.

Return spaghetti to the pot as well as the egg/parmeson mixture. Toss for about 30 seconds or until pasta is coated and eggs are slightly set.
