“This is a favorite supper dish that's quick and easy to make. I double it for our family of 4 growing boys. We serve it all up and then add on the goodies that are left in the bottom of the bowl - there's always bacon and eggs left down there.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving some of the drippings, crumble and set aside.
  3. Scramble eggs in bacon drippings.
  4. Place spaghetti in a large bowl. Pour in olive oil, and mix well; use enough to just moisten spaghetti. Stir in bacon, eggs, and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

I'm sorry but this carbonara is nothing like a real carbonara. I tried making this last night. The eggs should not be scambled in a pan, they should coat the pasta. It was very dry and bland. Spaghetti Carbonara is my favorite Italian dish. I have tried many. I have lived across the border from Italy and had the real thing. This was far from it. It should not even be in this catagory.

Warning, a look at the nutritional information for this recipe is revealing. This recipe is estimated to have 62 grams of fat in each serving (the recipe makes six servings for a total of 372 grams of fat). That's more than an entire pint of ben & jerry's cookie dough in one serving (one sixth of this recipe!) With the majority of that fat coming from bacon and eggs, this may not be the healthiest meal for children or adults...

That is a huge amount of bacon for six servings, I'd cut it in half. Also, the eggs are tossed with the hot pasta to cook, not scrambled into little lumps.
