Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe

Spaghetti Carbonara is perfect for your weekly dinner menu. This dish is a classic that combines bacon with noodles, an egg mixture and a delicious wine sauce. The Parmesan cheese is an important ingredient in this recipe because of the flavor that it adds. This recipe does call for raw egg; however, any bacteria will be killed when the egg mixture is combined with the hot noodles. Enjoy.

1 pound spaghetti
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 slices bacon (diced)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion (chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)
¼ cup white wine
4 eggs
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a small bowl combine eggs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. Cook noodles according to package directions.
Step 2: While noodles are coking. In a medium skillet over medium heat cook bacon until slightly crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Leave about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in the pan and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add chopped onion and cook until the onion is tender. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add wine and cook for another minute.
Step 3: Drain noodles when they are finished cooking and put into a large serving dish. While the noodles are still very hot toss them with the parmesan/egg mixture.  Then add the onion and wine mixture and toss well to coat. Then add bacon and toss again. Top with parsley and additional parmesan cheese for serving.
(Makes 6 Servings)

    This looks so awesome. I think I should just bite the bullet and try the recipe. I avoid carbonara because of the eggs but after seeing your post I think I better just try it!

    This looks amazing. I don’t think I have ever had a Carbonara, but it does look amazing. Although I am a little nervous about the raw egg.

    Just made this recipe for the 2nd time in 2 weeks! My family and I absolutley love it. For everyone worried about the raw egg, dont, it basically cooks itself when mixed with the hot pasta. This recipe is soooooo good. I tossed some grilled chicken into it! YUM!
