Spaghetti alla Carbonara

One of my favorite dishes – period. Spaghetti alla Carbonara (the wife of the charcoal burner) has most of the important ingredients/allergens: Pasta, egg, cheese, bacon – and it’s prepared in minutes!

While you cook your pasta (spaghetti or maybe linguine) al dente, put a little olive oil in a pan and cook bacon, 2 minced cloves of garlic, and a little chili flakes over medium heat. Mix 2 eggs with a tbsp of milk and 2 tbsp of the pasta water, salt and pepper. When you tasted the pasta for doneness drain it, but leave a little water in the pot. Add the contents of the pan as well as the egg mixture into the pasta and add your parmesan. Mix well and add parsley, salt, and pepper to taste. Buon appetito!
