  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the bacon, and cook until the bacon has begun to shrink, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and continue cooking and stirring until the garlic has softened, and the bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes. Toss the drained pasta with the bacon, oil, and parsley to serve.

I add a whipped up raw egg to the hot pasta along with the bacon and 1/4 c Parmesan cheese. Easy and delicious.

Meh. This was okay but really bland and needed something like oregano or rosemary added for flavor. Maybe some parmesan too? It was just grease and pasta with a little garlic taste, not too impr...

I am going to rate this a 4, but it was a one timer at our house. Flavor was good just not our style. A couple of MUSTS: Cut the oil WAY back, add additional veggies/spices. I added broccoli...

Yummy!!! Simple and delicious Italian dish. Just sprinkle with Parmesan for perfection.
