Pasta Carbonara

I don’t really know what to say about this recipe. My best guess is that they make it occasionally at the dining hall and I decided I liked it because compared to pasta with red sauce (which they serve probably 5/7 days), anything is exciting and delicious.

So I tried this recipe… and I liked it, but my parents are not really fans of cream-based/cheesy things… so it was not their favorite. But if you like pasta with cheese and bacon, this is a really easy and delicious recipe.

Also this is a pre-SLR picture… so… it’s pretty awful. But it tastes good and that’s what counts right?

This recipe came from Our Kitchen.

8-10 strips of the leanest bacon you can find
16 oz cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 box pasta (any kind)

Cut the bacon into 1 cm strips and fry over medium heat.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add pasta and cook until al dente.

Once bacon is cooked, add cream, salt and pepper and simmer until creamy. Whisk together the egg and parmesan. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add to the pan and stir through the cream sauce. Add the egg and parmesan and stir again.
