Spaghetti Carbonara | Recipe

Posted on August 13, 2014 by Warrick Dowsett | 1 comment

Salty, creamy, cheesy, rich and lovely spaghetti carbonara.  A dish you love to hate.


Ingredients |

1/2 box spaghetti cooked (12 oz box)
1 Clove Garlic Minced
2 Eggs whisked
3 Rashes of bacon sliced (3 thick cut strips)
1/4 Cup Shaved Parmigiano
1 Tbs Butter
1/2 Cup leftover pasta water
Cracked Pepper
Olive Oil (for garnish if desired)

Method |

Cook Pasta al dente (for approximately 7 minutes), drain, save remaining pasta water.

In large skillet on medium high heat cook bacon until chewy and slightly crisp, don't overcook bacon.  Remove bacon from pan and set aside on paper towel.  Leave a bit of bacon fat in pan and cook garlic until lightly browned.

Add to skillet with your garlic, your pasta and bacon.  Turn heat off.

Stir in eggs (make sure eggs are off from the heat, you want them cooked by the heat of the dish but you don't want scrambled eggs).  Add parmesan.  Fold through.  Add 1 Tbs butter.  Add 1/2 cup remaining pasta water if needed to lighten dish.  Finish with cracked pepper.  Drizzle of olive oil if desired.

    I met you at the Boston Flower Show this past weekend and absolutely loved your products……I’m the one who decided to wear it on my shirt as an advertisement! The hardest part of it all is deciding whether to keep what I purchased or give it to one of our sons.both of whom are great cooks! I think I might give it away and reorder some for myself! It was nice to meet you and I look forward to reading your blog!
