From Italy: Easy Pasta Carbonara

From Italy: Easy Pasta Carbonara

Italians don't put heavy cream in pasta carbonara!
The bacon should be crispy.
Season with plenty of cheese and black pepper!

Ingredients: 2 servings

200 g
1 or 2 slices
Whole egg
Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons
Black pepper
to taste
Olive oil
to taste
Salt (to boil spaghetti)
to taste


1. Coarsely chop the bacon and fry until almost crispy. (Add some garlic, if you like.)
2. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the Parmesan cheese and black pepper, and mix well.
3. Add the cooked spaghetti to the beaten egg, and stir quickly. (Some egg will get lumpy due to the residual heat of the pasta.)
4. Add bacon, mix, then serve.
5. Sprinkle with some black pepper, and enjoy.
