Ingredients
  • 1 pound spaghetti, dry
  • ¼ pound bacon
  • 2 large eggs plus 2 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley for serving
Instructions
  1. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Boil the pasta per package instructions until al dente. This should take about 7-8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile add bacon to a cold pan and bring to medium-high heat. As bacon begins to crisp, turn over. Allow bacon to cook to desired done-ness and set aside on a paper towel to absorb some of the additional grease.
  3. Once bacon is done sauté garlic in bacon fat for 1 minute. Remove garlic along with 1 tablespoon of fat and set aside.
  4. Before straining pasta, reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  5. Place eggs, yolks, 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, pepper, sautéed garlic, and bacon fat in a bowl and slowly whisk in the cup of pasta water.
  6. Cut bacon into ¼” thick pieces, add bacon and carbonara sauce to pasta and mix together.
  7. Top pasta with parsley and remaining Parmesan. Serve and enjoy!
