Spaghetti Alla Carbonara
This is one of those dishes that should be served immediately.
It becomes dry and sticky fairly quickly, but they'll come running for this one.
1lb. spaghetti- cooked
8 slices bacon-cut into lardons
3 eggs beaten
1/4cup light cream- if using milk, a bit less
4tbl Parmesan cheese
2tbl chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
Heat oil. Add bacon and fry til slightly crispy.
Drain spaghetti, and add to the pan.
Gently stir in beaten eggs, salt, pepper, parsley and cream. Stir very gently over low heat until eggs just begin to set.
Toss spaghetti lightly with Parmesan. Serve immediately. Top with more Parmesan (if desired)
