Pasta Carbonara!

A delicious meal. When you don't have much time to cook, but want to eat something nice!
Make this with a small salad and everybody will love you with this dinner!

Makes 5 portions.

You need:
4 small shallots
1 tsp olive oil
4 eggs
4 tbs heavy cream
1 cup parmesan cheese
500 g spaghetti
500 g bacon / pancetta
fresh black pepper

What to do:
Bring a big pan with water to a boil, and add a little pinch of salt.

Heat a sauce pan with 1 tbs olive oil. Add the bacon / pancetta, and cook them untill they are lightly browned.

Now add your pasta to the boiling water.

Add the onions to the bacon / pancetta, and let it cook for an other 3 minutes or until the onions and bacon are fully cooked and crispy.

Whisk, in the meantime, the eggs, heavy cream and parmesan together. Season it with a good amount of freshly ground pepper.

When your pasta is cooked, drain it.

(Off the heat) Add your bacon / pancetta and onions to the pasta. Then add your egg mixture to the pasta as well. Stir! (make sure it's off the heat: you don't want to have scrambled eggs!)

Devide it over your plates, and

  1. This is without doubt one of the top three favorite meals in this house. When Adam lived in Italy he lived on Carbonara and it's first on the menu when he's feeling blue. the ultimate in comfort food as far as he's concerned. Some lovely photos here, too. Glad to have found you, good luck with your delightful blog!
