If you are looking for a quick and delicious meal, you are at the right place. This carbonara dish takes no more than 30 mins and you will have a steaming bowl of pasta ready!

Ingredients

125g of pasta (Spaghettini , linguini)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 pack of bacon (thicker the better), cubed or sliced into small strips
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 large eggs
1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, plus more for serving
2 tbsp Lemon Pepper
1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Prepare the sauce while the pasta is cooking to ensure that the spaghetti will be hot and ready when the sauce is finished; it is very important that the pasta is hot when adding the egg mixture, so that the heat of the pasta cooks the raw eggs in the sauce.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender yet firm (as they say in Italian “al dente.”)
  3. Drain the pasta well, reserving 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water to use in the sauce.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium flame. Add the bacon and saute for about 3 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the fat is rendered.
  5. Toss the garlic into the fat and saute for less than 1 minute to soften.
  6. Add the hot, drained spaghetti to the pan and toss for 2 minutes to coat the strands in the bacon fat.
  7. Beat the eggs and Parmesan together in a mixing bowl, stirring well to prevent lumps.
  8. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the egg/cheese mixture into the pasta, whisking quickly until the eggs thicken, but do not scramble (this is done off the heat to ensure this does not happen.)
  9. Thin out the sauce with a bit of the reserved pasta water, until it reaches desired consistency.
  10. Season the carbonara.
