Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Made this dish couple of times already and they’re super delicious and easy . This dish doesn’t even take that many ingredients , most of the ingredients should be available on hand , even if you have to run to the store ,  it won’t cost you too much money . If you’re too concern about the raw eggs , don’t be , because the super hot pasta will cook your raw eggs automatically , you just have to make sure you have everything ready right on time and serve it immediately .

  • 3 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 ounces thick sliced bacon
  • 1 pound Spaghetti
  • 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 4 garlic cloves , minced
  • 4 large Eggs separated
  • Freshly ground Black Pepper

1. In a skillet , cook the bacon until it becomes crispy , set aside . Leaving some of the bacon grease on the skillet . Add garlic minced , cook for 1 minute . Meanwhile , cook your spaghetti al dente ( make sure you salt the water before adding the spaghetti )

2. Drain the spaghetti , and reserve some of the water , and add the spaghetti into the skillet with bacon and garlic , mix well . Then pour the spaghetti into the eggs and cheese mixture , stirring quick so it won’t curdle ( heat off ! ) , sprinkle with lots of black pepper .
