Spaghetti alla Carbonara


This pasta dish is something I made a while ago and as I have not made anything special or baked anything latley.
I thought I will make use of something which is lying in my draft.
 
If you ask me is this a authentic recipe I would say NOOOOO as I have had this dish when I was in Italy and it is totally different, the way I got in a plate was with a fresh egg yolk in the middle of the pasta dish etc...
But this is how we love here at home and as I always say cook or make dishes according to how your family and yourself how to have them.

Ingridients:
2 tbsp of olive oil
I small onion finley chopped
2 garlic chopped
200 gm of bacon chopped ( I sometimes use ham instead of bacon)
250 to 300 gm spaghetti
2whole eggs
200 ml cream
Pepper and salt to taste ( just take care of the salt as bacon is already salty)
8 table spoon grated parmesan and plus extra for serving

Heat the oil in a pan, and saute the onions and garlic till they are soft , add the bacon and fry till it is done, in a bowl mix the cream, eggs, parmesan cheese. In the mean time boil the pasta according to the packet instruction .
Drain the pasta and add the pasta to the onion/bacon mix, pour the cream ,egg, paremsan mix and heat everything through.
Add pepper and salt to taste.
Serve while it is hot with extra sprinkling of cheese.

Glad to see you posting Finla.
Spaghetti looks good. For some reason I do not like cream based sauces in Pasta.
